Established in 1955, The North Central Local Government Association is a non-profit, non-partisan association comprised of all elected officials in North Central British Columbia. We work to connect communities, identify common challenges and facilitate positive change. As our name implies, we are a coalition of cities, towns, First Nation communities, villages and regional districts. Our jurisdiction covers 70% of BC’s landmass and includes nearly 60% of the province’s Indigenous 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.
