The Central Coast Regional District  is nestled in the heart of the central coast and is home to some of British Columbia´s most spectacular scenery and natural beauty. The area encompasses some 25,000 square kilometres and includes five electoral areas in the unincorporated communities of Bella Bella, Bella Coola, Hagensborg, Denny Island, Ocean Falls and Oweekeno.

Incorporated in 1968, the Central Coast Regional District is a regional government serving a population of less than 4,000 residents. The Regional District provides local and regional protective, recreational, environmental and transportation services to area ratepayers.

The region is surrounded with natural beauty - long coastlines, towering mountains, tranquil lakes and expansive grasslands. Liveliness in the central coast region comes from the outdoor activities that compliment the surrounding landscape - fishing, horseback riding, opportunities for beautiful, rare photography, skiing, or kayaking.

The Central Coast Regional District boasts some of the most expressive and unique culture anywhere in the world. Living in the region means being enveloped into a new world - the communities date back hundreds of years, and are enriched by the First Nations cultures of the area.

Well positioned for diversification and growth, the communities of the Central Coast Regional District provide a unique opportunity for business, investment, lifestyle and possess numerous sustainable competitive advantages.
