Planning is an important part of the work that CCRD undertakes each year.  With the exception of the Strategic Plan 2019-2022, plans are generally written by staff with input from board members, and then are approved by the board through resolution at a public meeting.  These plans then guide the work of staff for the various services CCRD offers to its communities, and the work of board members as they advocate to other orders of government, such as the Province of BC and the Government of Canada.  This helps to ensure that the efforts of the entire organization are in alignment, and are performed efficiently and effectively.
