Not by government alone: B.C. partnerships in green planning
Located on southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia's Capital Regional District (CRD) is a federation of municipalities that work together to provide regional services. The district's combination of forests, mountains, rocky hilltops, ocean, rivers, creeks and lakes make it one of the most ecologically diverse regions in Canada, attracting visitors and new residents from around the world. Since the early nineties, the federal and provincial governments, along with the CRD, municipalities, and public and conservation organizations, have worked together to protect the regions' natural areas. This has been accomplished through various partnership arrangements.
