Sea to Sky Regional Hospital District

Health care in British Columbia is governed, planned, and delivered by five regional health authorities. All Squamish-Lillooet residents pay for the costs of building local hospitals and purchasing equipment through their property taxes, with the funds being administered by a regional hospital district.

Taxpayers in Electoral Areas A and B, along with the District of Lillooet, are part of the Thompson Regional Hospital District which is administered through the Thompson-Nicola Regional District. Taxpayers in Electoral Areas C and D, the Village of Pemberton, the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the District of Squamish are part of the Sea to Sky Regional Hospital District (SSRHD). 

Sea to Sky Regional Hospital District

Generally speaking, the Sea to Sky Regional Hospital District exists to borrow funds and finance construction projects or equipment purchases at facilities located within the hospital district boundary. Regional hospital districts are governed under the provincial Hospital District Act. The Sea to Sky Regional Hospital District Board is composed of the Electoral Area C and D Directors, along with the Municipal Directors from the Village of Pemberton, the Resort Municipality of Whistler, and the District of Squamish.
