The NRRM, incorporated on February 6th, 2009, is the first Regional Municipality in BC and officially combines the former entities of the Town of Fort Nelson and the Northern Rockies Regional District. The boundaries of the NRRM mimic that of the previous Regional District, encompassing about 10% of provinces landmass (85,148.87 km2 or 32,876.16 square miles).
The NRRM is home to one of the most progressive tax regimes in the province. As endorsed by CEPA and CAPP, the "3.3 Ratio Industrial Rate Policy" firmly links residential and industrial property taxes to industrial taxes providing all parties with tax fairness, certainty and predictability. The major sectors in the region are oil & gas, forestry, agriculture, tourism, transporation, and the public sector.
Local access to the regional tax base, the simplification of single-tier government, the broadened authority of local government, and the formation of the Economic Forum to facilitate meaningful and effective communication and co-operation will all work to the benefit of all citizens of the Northern Rockies.
