State of Local Emergency Declared

The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) has declared a state of local emergency to more effectively plan for and respond to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.

The declaration applies to all Electoral Areas – i.e. A, B, C and D of the SLRD.

Declaring a state of emergency allows us to take additional measures to ensure we have the resources needed to maintain essential services and meet the demands of other agencies, including Vancouver Coastal Health and Interior Health.

Free Stores to Close Temporarily

The SLRD is dedicated to the health and safety of our staff and the communities we serve

We have been closely monitoring and responding to the updates from Federal and Provincial governments and the health authorities regarding COVID-19 and have come to the difficult decision to close the free stores at the Pemberton, Devine and Gold Bridge transfer stations.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and hope to re-open the free stores when it is safe to do so.
