NRRM Infrastructure Development Contribution Agreement Facts
The Infrastructure Development Contribution Agreement is the legal instrument for the Province to provide up to $10 million annually to the NRRM for infrastructure funding for 20 years, beginning in 2015 through 2035, contingent upon an overall capital expenditure and asset management plan of at least $20 million each year over the lifetime of the agreement.
The purpose of the agreement is to ensure that the NRRM`s community infrastructure is upgraded and expanded to facilitate the growth in BC’s natural gas industry, and also future forestry and mining development.
Future infrastructure costs will be shared equitably between the Province and the Northern Rockies with the Province generally assuming growth related costs and the NRRM assuming non-growth related costs.
This partnership agreement between the Province and the NRRM will action both parties planning and investing in NRRM’s infrastructure decision making – and will focus on proactive, long term and adaptive capital planning tied to industrial and community growth.
An Infrastructure Management Committee (two NRRM and two Provincial representatives) will be formed for the duration of the agreement. The role and function of the management committee is to review the rolling — one, five and twenty year Capital Plans submitted by the NRRM and to make a single recommendation to the respective Ministers for approvals which will trigger the annual Provincial grant.

About Save BC Film
British Columbia has successfully been a location for Film and Television Production since the 1970s. Over the past three plus decades, the industry has grown to earning an average of $1.2 billion dollars per year and employing 25,000+ BC residents. Or at least that’s what we believe.
The government is questioning our numbers, so we’re going to use PlaceSpeak to get to the facts. In order to obtain verifiable feedback data to inform the provincial government about the facts of the industry, we want people to sign up for PlaceSpeak and be counted.
Whistler community members now have another way of providing input to the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) with the launch of the RMOW’s Budget 2013 page onPlaceSpeak.com.
PlaceSpeak is an online platform where residents, second homeowners, and business owners can find information, register for updates, discuss issues, complete a survey, and share ideas about the 2013 budget with the Finance and Audit Committee and council.
Mayor Nancy Wilhelm-Morden said, “PlaceSpeak has been used successfully for public consultation by a number of communities and neighbourhood groups in the Lower Mainland, and we are excited to try it in Whistler as a pilot project. We hope to reach a wider audience, including our large population of second homeowners, and to receive valuable feedback on the budget and financial planning process.”
