Regional Service Arrangements and Service Reviews


In recent years legislative changes have added increased flexibility and more tools for the provision and funding of local government services within regional districts, and the effective resolution of conflict that can arise within service partnerships. Through the guides and booklets below, practical guidance is available to:

  • assist regional districts in designing innovative and sustainable service arrangements;
  • provide direction on ways to maximize the effectiveness of regional district service reviews; and
  • provide advice on using interest-based negotiation to reach agreement on RD service review and withdrawal issues.

Introductory booklets

These booklets introduce the opportunities for innovative service arrangements and service reviews to regional district board members and municipal council members.


These comprehensive guides are intended to provide assistance to regional district and municipal staff for designing creative and lasting service arrangements, and for renegotiating service arrangements effectively through service reviews or agreement on service withdrawal, where necessary.
