North Central Local Government Association

Established in 1955, The North Central Local Government Association (the elected voice of Central and Northern BC) works to connect communities, identify common challenges and facilitate positive change. As our name implies, we are a coalition of cities, towns, aboriginal communities, villages and regional districts. Our jurisdiction covers 70% of BC’s landmass and includes nearly 60% of the Province’s aboriginal population. Although forestry remains paramount, recent multi-billion dollar energy and mining projects make our region, per capita, one of the most heavily invested areas in North America.
