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.
MandateThe 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.
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. The region has a total land area of 4,886.20 km2 and a population of 32,743.
The region boasts six municipalities (three towns, two villages and one rural community), one Rural District and three First Nations communities.
