Community Engagement Overview

The Committee is responsible for ensuring that voters have the information they need to assess the options and, if a vote is called, make an informed choice. The Committee needs to provide electors with opportunities to review, question and understand what each option would mean for Sorrento-Blind Bay in terms of:

  • local service provision to the community
  • decision-making for the community
  • local government finances
  • property taxes paid by homeowners and businesses.

Please note: In response to the most recent public health order the Ministry of Municipal Affairs, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) has decided to push the pause button on the Sorrento-Blind Bay Incorporation Study community engagement process. This decision was taken after canvassing members of the Incorporation Study Advisory Committee, and consulting the Ministry of Municipal Affairs. It is hoped public engagement events will resume in January 2022. Read more.

The Committee will be working to help electors get informed. Information will be provided in a variety of formats, through a number of different methods. The full range of Opportunities to Get Informed are presented on the back page of the mailout that has been sent to all addresses in Blind Bay and Sorrento. A copy of the mailout can be found here.
