Other Regulations


  • The Islands Trust Regulation (B.C. Reg. 119/90) applies many provisions of other local government legislation to the bodies of the Islands Trust. The Islands Trust Regulation was amended by B.C. Reg. 469/2003 to reflect an application of Community Charter and Local Government Act provisions that is consistent with the approach taken in the legislation for regional districts. The Islands Trust Regulation is authorized under section 53 of the Islands Trust Act. The amendments apply the Community Charter’s ethical standards (e.g., rules regarding gift disclosure, use of insider information) to members of the Islands Trust Council and local trust committees and apply the Community Charter rules on the establishment of reserve funds and restrictions on use of municipal funds to the Islands Trust.
  • The Regional District Tax Regulation (B.C. Reg. 439/2003) and the Improvement District Tax Regulation (B.C. Reg. 438/2003) prescribe the relationships between tax rates for each of the nine property classes and the rate of interest for tax over-payment on taxation on behalf of regional districts and improvement districts. The Regional District Tax Regulation is authorized under section 806.1 of the Local Government Act and section 20 of the Taxation (Rural Area) Act, while the Improvement District Tax Regulation is authorized under sections 756, 757 and 767 of the Local Government Act.
