Within our boundaries there are five dynamic member municipalities all of which appointed elected officials to be Directors on the Regional District Board.
City of Terrace

City of Terrace: Terrace, the regional business centre for the area is located approximately 550 air miles northwest of Vancouver. Located on a series of natural flat benches or terraces within the Skeena River Valley, its close proximity to the ocean, low altitude, and protective shelter offered by the Coast Mountains has created a pleasant, enviable climate. Along with Kitimat, Terrace is one of the two largest communities in northwestern BC.

Village of Hazelton

The Village of Hazelton: Situated at the confluence of the Skeena and Bulkley Rivers,  the Village of Hazelton remains quaint and charming. Its population continues to reflect a mix of the original Gitxsan First Nations people and the settlers that joined them.  It has a small town the feeling of 'old frontier spirit' and a comfortable remoteness that carries the feeling of being "away from it all."
