In March 2020, the government of British Columbia declared a state of emergency for our province as the Comox Valley, along with other communities in Canada and around the world, responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. This video reviews the local government response in the Comox Valley, celebrates our achievements and looks towards the next phase of recovery, which will be dependent on the support of municipal and community partners.
What's Happening Now?
On May 12, the Board adopted a renewal plan that will focus CVRD operations for the remainder of 2020 and into future budget cycles.
CVRD staff are reviewing all necessary, critical and functional projects slated for the next five years as well as service levels. Recommended actions for the plan will be brought forward to the relevant committees, commissions and partners for review over the summer.
Approved actions will be included in the final document to be reviewed for adoption by the Board at its strategic planning session in September 2020.
In addition, the CVRD has taken numerous actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which are grouped around the CVRD's Core Services, including the Comox Strathcona Waste Management service.
