Established in 1967, the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District provides services to their member jurisdictions. As service providers, the Regional District provides three distinct roles:
- Serves as local government to the six (unincorporated) electoral areas, responsible for providing basic local services such as community planning, water supply and fire protection
- Serves as an inter-jurisdictional service body providing sub-regional services to different combinations of municipalities; electoral areas and First Nations
- Responsible for providing important regional services and undertaking key activities on behalf of, the entire region.
The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District Board of Directors recently adopted the philosophy "we are all one".
The Log Train Trail stretches for 25 kilometers along the foot of Beaufort Range. Scenic views and a trip through history highlight this year-round trail.
