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.


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 eight (8) legislated mandatory responsibilities:

  • Local planning
  • Solid waste management
  • Economic Development
  • Community Development
  • Tourism Promotion
  • Regional Transport
  • Planning of regional recreational, cultural and sports infrastructure, and cost sharing of infrastructure
  • Public Safety

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 Village of Nouvelle-Arcadie's territory in Northumberland County and the Rural Community of Beausoleil's territory in Westmorland County.
