Regional collaboration

A region with a reason to get serious about building sustainability

The Columbia Basin-Boundary Region is a sparsely populated region of southeast BC encompassing the Regional Districts of East Kootenay, Central Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary (the Kootenay Development Region), as well as the Northern Basin including the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, Areas A and B. With an economy dominated by forestry, mining and tourism, this isolated region has an enormous stake in managing resources sustainably and building resiliency to changing local and global conditions.

Our mission is to work with our communities to support collaborative leadership in sustainable resource management, renewable energy and ecological literacy. We want to complement the broad diversity of diffuse voices on sustainability with one strong, unified message the region’s residents will listen to.
