About the district:
"The Strathcona Regional District (SRD) is a partnership of four electoral areas and five municipalities providing nearly 43,000 residents with 74 services-from parks to a full-service sports facility to solid & liquid waste systems. The geography of the SRD ranges from forested hills to remote inlets to picturesque villages to vibrant urban landscapes. The borders extend from the Oyster River in the south to Gold River, Sayward, Tahsis, Zeballos and Kyuquot-Nootka in the north and west, and then east to take in Cortes, Quadra and the Discovery Islands, and a portion of the mainland north of Powell River.
The SRD was established on February 15, 2008, making it one of the two newest regional districts in BC. (The other is the Comox Valley Regional District, immediately to the south of the SRD. The CVRD and the SRD were created out of the provincial government's restructure of the Comox Strathcona Regional District.) " - from official SRD website: http://www.strathconard.ca.
