The Local Government Act establishes the requirement for local governments to prepare Regional Context Statements. Regional Context Statements must identify the relationship between the Official Community Plan and the goals and strategic directions identified in the RGS. If applicable, Regional Context Statements will identify how the Official Community Plan will be made consistent with the RGS over time.
Regional Context Statements have been accepted for all four member municipalities.
- District of Lillooet (2021)
- Village of Pemberton (2021)
- Resort Municipality of Whistler (2019)
- District of Squamish (2021)
Successful implementation of the RGS depends on cooperation between the SLRD and member municipalities, and the ability of local plans, policies and programs to contribute to the regional planning goals identified in the RGS. As such, Regional Context Statemetns are the main implementation tool of the RGS.
