Who We Are

Regional Service Commissions (RSCs) are governed by their constituent communities and act as service delivery agents. They are not a separate level of government; decisions are made by the communities through representatives on the board of directors.

Mandate

The Kent Regional Services Commission (KRSC) plays three (3) major roles:
  • Providing, or facilitating the delivery of, legislated services to communities
  • Facilitating the establishment of voluntary service agreements between interested communities
  • Serving as a forum where communities collaborate on regional issues.

 

The Regional Service Delivery Act states that RSCs have two legislated mandatory responsibilities that they exercise individually and four that involve regional collaboration:

  • Local planning
  • Solid waste management
  • Regional planning
  • Collaboration on policing services
  • Emergency measures planning
  • Planning of regional recreational, cultural and sports infrastructure, and cost sharing of infrastructure

 

Owing to a dynamic Board and the leadership of its administrative team, the KRSC’s work extends beyond the six responsibilities set out in the Act.
