The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District is situated in the heart of Vancouver Island with one of the most dramatic and majestic landscapes. The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District is a federation consisting of member Municipalities; Port Alberni, Tofino, Ucluelet, Treaty First Nations; Huu-ay-aht, Yuułuʔiłʔatḥ, Uchucklesaht Tribe Government and Toquaht Nation and six electoral areas; "A" (Bamfield), "B" (Beaufort), "C" (Long Beach), "D" (Sproat Lake), "E" (Beaver Creek) and "F" (Cherry Creek). The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District is within the traditional territory of ten First Nations.

Established in 1966, 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".
