Street Lighting within the five municipalities within the Strathcona Regional District (Campbell River, Tahsis, Sayward, Gold River and Zeballos) is provided by the municipalities.

Snow Removal & Ditching

Road maintenance for residents living in rural portions of the Strathcona Regional District – i.e. outside of municipal boundaries – is the responsibility of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI), who has contracted the maintenance work to Emcon Services Inc.
