Community Charter

Most municipalities in the Metro Vancouver region are governed by the Community Charter  as well as the Local Government Act, under the Province of British Columbia. It contains several provisions relating to ethics and conduct. The City of Vancouver is a special case with its own Vancouver Charter. The Local Government Act is the primary legislation for regional districts; certain municipal provisions remain in effect for matters not covered by the Community Charter.
