Comox Valley RD
The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is a partnership of four electoral areas and three municipalities providing nearly 60,000 residents with 87 services -- from parks to full-service sports facilities to a regional solid waste system that serves both the CVRD and the Strathcona Regional District. The geography of the CVRD includes rural agricultural, vibrant urban, meandering coastline and dramatic mountains. The CVRD covers an area of just over 1,725 square kilometres (666 square miles) and serves a population of 58,824 according to the 2006 Census. Our borders extend from Cook Creek in the south to the Oyster River in the north, west to Strathcona Park, and east to take in Denman and Hornby Islands.
The CVRD was established in February 2008, following the restructure of the Comox Strathcona Regional District into two: Comox Valley Regional District and the Strathcona Regional District. The boundaries of the Comox Strathcona Regional Hospital District (CSRHD) are the same as those two combined regional districts and have the same board of directors as the CVRD and SRD combined.
