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.


Regional Profile

The KRSC is located in eastern New Brunswick and covers all of Kent County, as well as the Rogersville communities, the Rogersville Local Service District (LSD) and the Collette LSD in Northumberland County. The region has a total land area of 4,886.20 km2 and a population of 32,743.

The region boasts six municipalities (two towns and four villages), one rural community, 20 LSDs and three First Nations communities. Of those 20 LSDs, 17 have an advisory committee, 12 of which are represented on the KRSC Board by a regular member or substitute.


Board of Directors

The KRSC is governed by a 17-member board of directors consisting of seven mayors and ten LSD presidents.
