Servicing and Utilities at Resort Communities in British Columbia

Jeff Christian

This paper provides information on four topics that should be useful to developers of resort properties, as well as potential buyers and investors in resort property strata units, homes or commercial enterprises. The four topics are: the unique characteristics and issues of utility services; who are the utility regulators and what do they do?; From whom, and under what terms, are utility services available?; and a summary of issues for developers and investor-owners.
