qathet Regional District to engage region on preferred communications methods

Powell River, B.C. –The qathet Regional District (qRD) is seeking the public’s feedback on how to communicate and engage with residents more effectively.


The qRD will be hosting virtual public workshops for Electoral Areas and the City of Powell River beginning Tuesday, October 19, 2021. The purpose of the engagement is to gather public comments on how to improve public engagement for qRD projects and initiatives. Accompanying the workshops is a survey, open to all residents in the region, which will be available from October 18 to November 8, 2021. Participants can enter their names to win one of two $50 gift certificates from a local business.


The qRD hopes to involve a broad range of community members and key actors to ensure a diversity of community views, knowledge and interests are represented to help form the qRD’s Regional Communications and Engagement Strategy.


The Regional Communications and Engagement Strategy aims to address both internal and external communications and engagement processes and will include identifying communications gaps in the region, barriers to communications and engagement, and determining the most effective communications methodologies for each Electoral Area and residents of the City.
