REPORT
File No.: 12-0507-B-TA / 3060.03.03
TO:
Board of Directors
FROM:
Planning Department
DATE:
April 3, 2014
SUBJECT:
Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592, 2013 [Secondary Suites]
RECOMMENDATION:
That Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592, 2013 which proposes to amend the Regional District
of North Okanagan Zoning Bylaw No. 1888, 2003 to permit secondary suites within single family
dwellings on parcels in the Small Holding (S.H), Country Residential (C.R), Non-Urban (N.U), and
Large Holding (L.H) zones be given Second Reading and be referred to a Public Hearing.
BACKGROUND:
Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592, 2013 proposes to amend Zoning Bylaw No. 1888 to allow
secondary suites in single family dwellings on Rural zoned properties which are at least 1.0 ha in size.
At the Regular Meeting held on December 11, 2013, the Board of Directors gave First Reading to
Bylaw No. 2592 and resolved to refer it to various agencies for review and comment.
In considering Bylaw No. 2592 and the requirements of the Drinking Water Protection Act and
Regulation, the Directors also resolved to forward a letter to the Ministry of Health requesting that the
definition of a “water supply system” exclude two private residences served by the same water system
on a single parcel of land.
In follow-up to this resolution, a letter dated December 16, 2013 was sent to the Ministry of Health to
advise of the concerns of the Board of Directors regarding community water system requirements and
citing Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) Resolution 2012 – 8102 which proposed
changes to the Drinking Water Protection Regulation to allow for one (1) well to service two (2)
residences on one property. The letter requested that the Ministry advise on the anticipated timeline
for the consideration of the changes proposed by UBCM to be implemented. To date, the Ministry of
Health has not responded to this letter, although this matter has been addressed in the comments
provided by Interior Health through the above noted referral process.
REFERRAL COMMENTS:
In response to direction provided by the Board of Directors, Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592
was referred for comments to the Advisory Planning Commissions for all of the Electoral Areas, the
Regional Agricultural Advisory Committee, the Okanagan Basin Water Board, Ministry of Agriculture,
Agricultural Land Commission, the Regional District Building Inspection Department and Sustainability
Coordinator, and the Interior Health Authority.
Following are the comments received in response to the referral:

Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592 [Secondary Suites]
Report to Electoral Area Advisory Committee – April 3, 2014
Page 2
1. Electoral Area Advisory Planning Commissions
 Electoral Area “B” APC generally supported Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592, 2013
 Electoral Area “C” APC had the following comments:
Good alternative option for housing/owners to have a rental;
Staff time and resources a concern regarding enforcement;
Fire separation for residents of secondary suites an important issue; and
Number of residents allowed in a secondary suite/how to monitor number of residents in a
suite is a concern.
 Electoral Area “D” APC supported Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592, 2013
 Electoral Area “E” APC expressed concern as Area “E” is not part of the Okanagan Water
Basin. The committee supports the Regional Health Authority Director’s letter (June 2012) to
the Ministry of Health requesting that the DWPA and DWPR exclude two private residences
served by the same water system on a single parcel of land from the definition of a “water
supply system”. The committee requests that RDNO meet with IHA to investigate alternative
options for waste disposal systems, as IHA has promised to look into this in the past. The
committee agrees that there are three acceptable options for secondary suites for all lots that
are greater than 1 ha: 1) there may be a suite in a house; or 2) upstairs in an ancillary building;
or 3) a suite may be a cabin up to 800 square feet. Note: There should be no size limit on the
ancillary building, and the same water supply and septic fields may be used.
2. Regional Agricultural Advisory Committee
Secondary suites would be a good start in helping farmers to make a living and have a viable
farming operation and that there may be a need to fine-tune the restrictions/requirements.
3. Interior Health Authority
January 6, 2014
Provided that a parcel is serviced by community sanitary sewer and community water system
this office has no issue with secondary suites. However where these services are not available
the parcel of land must be large enough to contain the necessary infrastructure (sewage
disposal system, water supply system, parking, etc.) to support a primary dwelling and a
secondary suite. Provided that the parcels in a zone are sized to contain sufficient sewerage
disposal area for the intended use into the future there should be no issues with respect to
onsite sewage disposal. The difficulty is that the sizing of disposal systems is determined partly
by the soil conditions on the subject property and soil conditions vary from property to property
so it is difficult to determine a “one size fits all” lot sizing.
Regarding water supply for dwellings with secondary suites, connection to an existing
community water system is recommended. By definition under the Drinking Water Protection
Act (DWPA) a primary dwelling serviced by an onsite water supply with a secondary suite
sharing the same water source and distribution system as the primary residence constitutes a
water supply system and as such the DWPA and Drinking Water Protection Regulation
(DWPR) would apply.
In June 2012 the Regional Health Authority Directors sent a joint letter to the Ministry of Health
to reflect support in principle for the Southern Interior Local Government’s Associations (SILGA)
resolution calling on the Ministry of Health to consider changing the Drinking Water Protection
Act and Regulation to exclude two private residences served by the same water system on a
single, indivisible parcel of land from the definition of a “water supply system”. It was
understood that SILGA’s resolution was to be advanced to the UBCM for discussion in the fall
of 2012.

Concern with the scope of BC Health Authority’s responsibility for drinking water safety in
private homes has been a point of discussion since before enactment of the Drinking Water
Protection Act. In consideration of the explicit protection for tenants provided under the new
Health Hazard Regulation (BC Reg. 216/2011) the change proposed by SILGA would improve
the Health Authority’s ability to protect public health in British Columbia.
To date, the legislative changes expressed in the SILGA resolution have not been enacted.
Until such time that the legislation is changed, the DWPA and DWPR are applicable to the
secondary suite scenario.
As mentioned earlier IHA recommends connection to a community sanitary sewer and
community water system. However where these services are not available, and provided that
the parcel is large enough and suitable to sustain into the future the required sewerage
disposal system(s) and water supply system in compliance with the applicable legislation,
issues with respect to sewerage disposal and water supply should be minimal.
January 21, 2014
The Interior Health Authority provided supplementary information to clarify their position with
respect to the DWPA and the IHA policy on water systems serving two residences on a single
lot. IHA noted that until such time as the legislation is changed (DWPA and DWPR) IHA has
made an administrative decision (Policy HP-WQ-220) that they will not be pursuing
enforcement of the current Drinking Water Protection Legislation as it applies to water systems
serving two residences on a single lot. In summary, Policy HP-WQ-220 states that Interior
Health staff do not typically provide routine inspection or permitting services for water supply
systems that serve two single family residences on a single, indivisible parcel of land. Interior
Health staff do, however, respond to service requests and complaints associated with all small
water systems within the context of the DWPA and Public Health Act.
4. Ministry of Agriculture
No objection to Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592.
5. Agricultural Land Commission
No objection to a secondary suite in an existing residence as this is a permitted use in the ALR.
6. Okanagan Basin Water Board
The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) advised that they had recently updated the terms of
reference for their sewage infrastructure grants program. In this regard, OBWB is asking all
local governments to update their bylaws within the Okanagan Basin area (the area eligible for
our grants), to restrict accessory dwellings on lots less than one hectare that rely on on-site
sewage disposal (septic systems).
All Okanagan local governments already prohibit
subdivision less than one hectare on septic, and this change extends the concept to carriage
houses. Secondary suites are acceptable if they share the sewage disposal system of the
primary dwelling. This policy change is intended to prevent septic failure in rural areas.
No additional comments have been received as a result of the referral process.
PLANNING ANALYSIS:
In consideration of the feedback obtained through the referral process, no amendments to Zoning
Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592 are deemed necessary at this stage and staff recommend that the
Bylaw be given Second Reading and advanced to a Public Hearing. Overall, the feedback has been
supportive of the proposed Zoning Bylaw amendments.

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA
May 7, 2014 - Item D.1
Page4
With respect to the comments from OBWB, Bylaw No. 2592 would be in compliance with the their
Policies and Sewerage Grant Programs as secondary suites would only be permitted as an integral
part of a single family dwelling on parcels which are at least 1 ha in size.
Water Systems Serving Two Residences on a Single Lot
The Interior Health Authority has advised that they will not be involved in routine inspections or
permitting of water systems serving two single family residences on a single parcel of land and they
will not pursue enforcement of the current Drinking Water Protection legislation as it applies to water
systems serving two residences on a single lot.
Under the DWPA, a "water supply system" means a domestic water system that serves more than
one single family residence . Many property owners assert that compliance with the DWPA
requirements is onerous for a person wanting to service two residences on one lot with water from a
single well. The concern is that under the DWPA, a person must have certain qualifications to
operate, maintain and repair a water supply system, must have a valid operating permit, must be
knowledgeable of applicable standards and requirements, must conduct water monitoring and testing
in accordance with the regulations and may be required to prepare a written emergency response and
contingency plan and/or an assessment response plan which would identify measures to address
threats to the water supply.
The administrative decision of Interior Health to implement their policy HP-WQ-220 appears to lessen
the burden on property owners who have, or intend to have, one domestic water well to service two
residences on a single property.
SUMMARY:
At the Regular Meeting held on December 11, 2013, the Board of Directors gave First Reading to
Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw No. 2592 which proposes to allow secondary suites in single family
dwellings on Rural zoned properties which are at least 1.0 hectare in size. The Bylaw was
subsequently referred to all of the Electoral Area Advisory Planning Commissions, the Regional
In
Agricultural Advisory Committee, various agencies and staff for review and comment.
consideration of the feedback received as an outcome of the referral process, staff recommend that
Bylaw No. 2592 be given Second Reading and be forwarded to a Public Hearing.

Greater Vernon Parks and Recreation - Restructure Bylaws
Page 2
BACKGROUND I HISTORY:
Following a meeting with Minister Coralee Oakes on March 27, 2014, a Working Team
(comprised of the Vernon CAO, Goldstream CAO and RDNO GM, Electoral Area
Administration) was formed to work with Ministry staff to move the necessary bylaws forward for
the parks and recreation restructure.
The Working Team met with Ministry staff on April 22, 2014 and reviewed components of an
over-arching implementation plan, including an outline of necessary bylaws.
DISCUSSION:
Staff will be bringing forward new bylaws, and although the content of the new bylaws will be
very similar to the bylaws that are the subject of this report, the Ministry has suggested a "fresh
start" approach by rescinding the first three readings of bylaws previously forwarded to the
Ministry.
Ministry staff will be briefing the Minister during the week of May 12, 2014. Following the
briefing with the Minister, the Working Team anticipates receiving 'approval in principle' from
Ministry staff, at which time new draft bylaws will be forwarded to the Ministry for review.
It is therefore recommended that First, Second and Third readings of Bylaws 2599, 2602, 2604
and 2605 be rescinded .

REGIONAL DISTRICT OF NORTH OKANAGAN - 6
BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA
May 7, 2014 - Item E.6
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the year ended December 31, 2013
The Regional District of North Okanagan ("the Regional District") was incorporated as a regional district in 1965 under the
Municipal Act (replaced by the Local Government Act) of British Columbia. Regional districts have three basic roles: they
provide a political and administrative framework for region-wide services and for inter-municipal or sub-regional services, and
act as the local government for electoral areas. The Board of Directors is composed of appointees from each member
municipality and a director elected from each electoral area. Municipal directors serve until council decides to change the
appointment. Directors from electoral areas serve for a three-year term. The number of directors and the number of votes
each may cast is based upon the population of the municipality.
1. Significant Accounting Policies
These consolidated financial statements have been prepared by management in accordance with Canadian generally
accepted accounting principles for local governments as recommended by the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) of the
Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada.
Basis of Consolidation
These consolidated financial statements reflect the combined assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses, and changes in fund
balances of all funds of the Regional District. All interfund balances and transactions have been eliminated.
Basis of Accounting
The Regional District follows the accrual method of accounting for revenues and expenses. Revenues are normally
recognized in the year in which they are earned and measurable. Expenses are recognized as they are incurred and
measurable as a result of the receipt of goods and services and/or the creation of a legal obligation to pay.
Measurement Uncertainty
The preparation of financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported
amounts in the financial statements and the disclosure of contingent liabilities. Significant estimates in these financial
statements include the determination of the useful lives of tangible capital assets, valuation of the landfill closure and postclosure obligation, and assessment of legal claims. For common financial statement items, such as accounts payable and
allowances for doubtful accounts, measurement uncertainty is inherent but not assessable. These estimates and
assumptions are based on management's judgment and the best information available at the time of preparation and may
differ significantly from actual results. Estimates are reviewed annually to reflect new information as it becomes available.
Segment Disclosures
A segment is defined as a distinguishable activity or group of activities of a government for which it is appropriate to
separately report financial information. For each reported segment, revenues and expenses are recorded that are either
directly attributable to the segment or are allocated to the segment on a reasonable, consistent basis. The accounting
policies used for these segments are consistent with those followed in the preparation of the consolidated financial
statements as described in note 1. The Regional District has provided definitions of the segments in note 20 as well as
presented financial information in segmented format for the current and prior year in Schedule C.
Budget Figures
The budget figures presented are compiled from the current five-year financial plan bylaw in effect. Certain amounts have
been reallocated to conform with PSAB presentation requirements where required (see note 19). Budget figures are not
subjected to the same auditing procedures as actual figures, and are presented for information purposes only. Subsequent
amendments to the budget bylaw are not reflected in the budget figures.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the year ended December 31, 2013
1. Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)
Financial Instruments
The Regional District's financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, loan receivable, debt
recoverable from municipalities, portfolio investments, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and long term debt. The
carrying value of these financial instruments approximates their fair values, unless otherwise noted.
Credit Risk
Credit risk is the risk that the Regional District will incur financial losses if a debtor fails to make payments when due. The
Regional District is exposed to credit risk on its loan receivable, debt recoverable from municipalities, and accounts
receivable. Risk in respect of the loan receivable and debt recoverable from municipalities is managed primarily by the
policies put in place by the MFA. The maximum exposure to credit risk in respect of accounts receivable is limited to the
carrying amount of trade and other receivables as disclosed in note 2, which is managed by credit policies such as
limiting the amount of credit extended and obtaining security deposits where appropriate.
Liquidity Risk
Liquidity risk is the risk that the Regional District will encounter difficulty in meeting obligations associated with its
accounts payable and long term debt. The Regional District manages this risk by holding a sufficient amount of funds in
highly liquid investments, maintaining a credit facility with its primary banking institution, closely monitoring cash flows,
and staggering the maturity dates of non-redeemable investments.
Market Risk
Market risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of financial assets or liabilities will fluctuate because of
changes in market prices. Market risk is composed of currency risk, interest rate risk, and other price risk.
Interest Rate Risk
Interest rate risk is the risk that the Regional District's debt servicing costs and the value of certain investments will
fluctuate due to changes in interest rates. In respect of debt servicing costs, the risk is minimal as all of the Regional
District's long term debt is fixed rate, and is usually refinanced every ten years as that is when most of the underlying
debentures issued by the MFA mature. Investments subject to interest rate risk include principal protected notes and
government bonds as disclosed in note 5. The amount of risk is minimal due to the relatively small amount invested.
Currency Risk
Currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of financial assets or liabilities will fluctuate due to
changes in foreign exchange rates. The Regional District is not exposed to any currency risk, and does not hold any
financial instruments in a foreign currency as at the year end.
Other Price Risk
Other price risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of the Regional District's investments will fluctuate
due to changes in market prices other than those arising from interest rate risk or currency risk. Investments subject
to other price risk include principal protected notes and government bonds as disclosed in note 5. The amount of risk
is minimal due to the nature of the instruments and the relatively small amount invested.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the year ended December 31, 2013
1. Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)
Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand, demand deposits, and short-term, highly liquid investments that are readily
convertible to known amounts of cash and subject to insignificant risk of change in value. Short-term investments have a
maturity of 90 days or less and their carrying value approximates fair value.
Portfolio Investments
Portfolio investments include an internally managed portfolio consisting of guaranteed investment certificates, and an
externally managed portfolio consisting of guaranteed investment certificates, principal protected notes, and government
bonds, all with a maturity of one year or more at the date of acquisition. These investments are carried at amortized cost.
Refundable Deposits
Refundable deposits consists of the refundable portion of development permits and building permits, performance security
deposits, and waterworks guarantees and securities. These deposits are recorded as a liability when received and will be
refunded in the fiscal year in which the service contract expires or the performance obligations have been met. If a security
deposit is drawn upon, it is recognized as revenue in the fiscal year in which the services are performed or the expenses are
incurred.
Landfill Closure and Post-Closure Obligation
The estimated costs to close and monitor solid waste landfill sites are based on estimated future expenses in current dollars,
adjusted for estimated inflation, and are charged to operations as the landfill site's capacity is used. The change in liability is
recorded as an operational expense. These estimates are reviewed and adjusted annually.
Employee Future Benefits
The Regional District and its employees participate in the Municipal Pension Plan, a multi-employer defined benefit pension
plan. Payments to the plan are expensed when paid. The Regional District also provides accumulated sick leave as a postemployment benefit. The liability for the sick leave benefit is accrued as earned and the obligation is updated annually to
reflect current wage costs.
Revenue Recognition
Revenue is recorded in the period in which the transactions or events that gave rise to the revenue occurred, provided that
reasonable estimates of the amounts can be made. Amounts received in advance of services rendered or obligations fulfilled
are recorded as deferred revenue until the services have been provided or the obligation that led to the collection of funds
has been discharged.
Tax Revenue
Tax revenue is the compulsory payment of financial resources to a government in a non-exchange transaction. Each
municipality and electoral area within the Regional District is requisitioned for its portion of each service participated in.
These funds are then levied by the municipalities and the province (on behalf of electoral areas) to individual taxpayers and
provided to the Regional District by August 1 of each year. Tax revenue is recognized in the year levied, provided that the
effective date of the tax has passed and the related bylaws have been approved by the Board.
Government Transfers
Government transfers are the transfer of monetary assets or tangible capital assets from senior levels of government that are
not the result of an exchange transaction, not expected to be repaid in the future, and not expected to generate a financial
return to the transferor.



Transfers without eligibility criteria or stipulations are recognized as revenue when the transfer is authorized.
Transfers with eligibility criteria but no stipulations are recognized as revenue when the transfer is authorized and all
eligibility criteria are met.
Transfers with or without eligibility criteria but with stipulations are recognized as revenue when the transfer is authorized
and all eligibility criteria are met, except to the extent that the transfer gives rise to an obligation.

May 7, 2014 - Item E.6
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the year ended December 31, 2013
1. Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)
Non-Financial Assets
Non-financial assets are held for use in the provision of services and are not normally available to discharge liabilities. They
have useful lives extending beyond the current year and are not intended for sale in the ordinary course of operations. The
change in non-financial assets during the year, together with the net surplus (deficit) for the year, provides the consolidated
change in net debt for the year.
Tangible Capital Assets
Tangible capital assets, including assets held under capital lease, are recorded at cost in the period in which they are
acquired or constructed. Cost includes all amounts that are directly attributable to the acquisition, construction, development,
or improvement of the asset. Costs of repairs and maintenance are charged to operations, and expenses that improve or
extend the useful life of an existing asset are capitalized.
Contributed Assets
Contributed or donated assets are capitalized and recorded at their estimated fair value upon acquisition, with a
corresponding entry to revenue in the period received.
Assets Under Capital Lease
Leases which transfer substantially all of the benefits and risks incidental to ownership of property are recorded as capital
leases. All others are accounted for as operating leases and charged to expense as incurred.
Assets Under Construction
Assets under construction are projects that are currently under planning, development or construction that will result in a
tangible capital asset at a future date. These costs are not amortized until the asset is available and ready for productive
use. Interest incurred on borrowed funds used during construction is not capitalized.
Intangible Assets
Intangible assets, such as software, right-of-ways, licences of occupation, works of art, and cultural or historical assets
are not recorded in these financial statements.
Amortization
One-half of the annual amortization expense is charged to operations in the year of acquisition and in the year of
disposal. Land used for the operation of solid waste landfills is amortized over the life of the landfill, and the annual
amortization expense is based on the capacity used during the year. The cost of tangible capital assets is amortized on a
straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives as follows:
Land
Land improvements
Buildings
Furniture and equipment
Vehicles
Light and medium duty
Heavy duty
Fire trucks
Computer equipment
Leasehold improvements
Infrastructure
Water infrastructure
Sewer & septage

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the year ended December 31, 2013
1. Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Tax Revenue
In February 2010, PSAB released the standard PS3510 Tax Revenue. This standard applies to all local governments for
fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2012. The new standard provides principles for the recognition, measurement,
and disclosure of tax revenue. This standard has been adopted for the fiscal period beginning January 1, 2013.
Government Transfers
In December 2010, PSAB released the standard PS3410 Government Transfers. This standard applies to all local
governments for fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2012. The new standard replaces the existing standard that
was issued prior to the adoption of full accrual accounting. This standard has been adopted for the fiscal period beginning
January 1, 2013.
Liability for Contaminated Sites
In March 2010, PSAB released the standard PS3260 Liability for Contaminated Sites. This standard applies to all local
governments for fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2014. The new standard requires that a liability be recorded
when the reporting government owns or accepts responsibility for remediation and mitigation of a site where
contamination exceeds an environmental standard. The effect of this accounting standard on the financial statements has
not yet been determined.
Financial Instruments
In March 2011, PSAB released the standard PS3450 Financial Instruments. This standard applies to all local
governments for fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2015. This standard applies to all types of financial
instruments. The new standard requires that equity and derivative instruments be measured at fair value, with changes in
value recorded on a statement of remeasurement gains and losses. The standard gives the option of cost/amortized cost
or fair value for the remaining instruments. This standard has been adopted for the fiscal period beginning January 1,
2013.
Foreign Currency Translation
In March 2011, PSAB released the standard PS2601 Foreign Currency Translation. This standard applies to all local
governments for fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2015. The new standard requires that exchange rates be
adjusted to the rate in effect at the financial statement date for monetary assets and liabilities and non-monetary items
recorded at fair value. Unrealized gains and losses are recorded on a statement of remeasurement gains and losses.
Gains and losses on long-term monetary assets and liabilities are amortized over the remaining term. This standard has
been adopted for the fiscal period beginning January 1, 2013.
Portfolio Investments
In March 2012, PSAB released the standard PS3041 Portfolio Investments. This standard applies to all local
governments and must be adopted when sections PS1201, PS2601, and PS3450 are adopted. The new standard
requires that temporary investments and pooled investments both be accounted for in the same manner as portfolio
investments. This standard replaces PS3030 Temporary Investments and PS3040 Portfolio Investments. This standard
has been adopted for the fiscal period beginning January 1, 2013.
Financial Statement Presentation
In June 2011, PSAB released the standard PS1201 Financial Statement Presentation. This standard applies to all local
governments and must be adopted when sections PS2601, PS3041, and PS3450 are adopted. The new standard
requires that any unrealized gains or losses on financial instruments recorded at fair value or monetary assets or
liabilities translated from a foreign currency be reported on a statement of remeasurement gains and losses. This
standard has been adopted for the fiscal period beginning January 1, 2013.

3. Loan Receivable
In April 2011, the Okanagan Regional Library ("ORL") borrowed $11 million through the Regional District towards
construction of its library facility in Vernon, BC, which was completed in May 2012. Pursuant to the loan agreement, the
Regional District is reimbursed by the ORL for all principal and interest payments made to the MFA in respect of the
borrowing. The repayment terms are the same as member municipalities follow when borrowing funds from the MFA through
the Regional District. The loan is secured by a first charge on the library facility located at 2808 - 30th Avenue in the City of
Vernon, British Columbia. The term of the loan is 20 years and the interest rate is 4.20%. Principal is paid annually and
interest is paid twice annually.

4. Debt Reserve Fund - Municipal Finance Authority
The Regional District is required to issue its debt instruments through the Municipal Finance Authority ("MFA"). As a
condition of borrowing, 1% of the gross debenture proceeds are withheld by the MFA as a debt reserve fund. The debt
reserve fund is invested by the MFA and interest earned and expenses incurred are reported annually to the Regional
District. If at any time the MFA does not have sufficient funds to meet payments or sinking fund contributions due on its
obligations, the payments will be made from the debt reserve fund. Details of cash deposits held in the debt reserve fund are
as follows:

The Regional District is also required to execute a demand note for each borrowing, in the amount of one-half of the average
annual principal and interest due, less the amount held back for the debt reserve fund. The demand notes payable to the
MFA are only callable in the event that a local government defaults on its loan obligation. As there has never been a default
in the history of the MFA, it is unlikely that the demand notes will be called; therefore, the contingent liability has not been
recorded in the financial statements. Details of demand notes are as follows:

Employee Future Benefits
The Regional District provides sick leave to employees that accumulates at the rate of 0.069 hours per regular hour worked,
to a maximum of 1,050 hours. Sick leave can be used for paid time off for illness of the employee or a dependent, at the
employee's normal pay rate. Except in the case of dismissal for just cause, employees are paid for one-half of the
accumulated sick leave upon leaving employment with the Regional District. The full amount of accumulated hours at current
wage rates is accrued as a liability. Benefits are paid from operating revenue as they come due as the sick leave benefit is
unfunded.

9. Landfill Closure and Post-Closure Obligation
The Regional District operates seven landfills within its boundaries and is responsible for the costs of their closure and postclosure activities. The costs related to these activities are provided for over the estimated remaining life of active landfill sites
based on usage.
The Regional District has three active and four closed sites. Closure activities include covering, grading and surface water
management. Post-closure activities include leachate and environmental monitoring, maintenance and reporting. Postclosure activities are expected to occur for approximately 25 years.
Key variables used in estimating the value of the closure and post-closure obligation include the cost of capital, inflation rate,
timing of closure and post-closure activities, and total capacity. In management's opinion, the assumptions used represent
the most likely scenario. As the projections are made over a long period of time, the amount of the obligation is very sensitive
to changes in the variables, and could range from approximately $5.1 million to $16 million.
In 2013, the Regional District estimated the costs associated with these activities based on engineering studies required by
the Ministry of Environment. Estimated expenses are calculated as the present value of future cash flows associated with
closure and post-closure costs, discounted using the Regional District's weighted average cost of capital of 3.75% and
inflated using the average total CPI inflation rate for Canada of 1.82% (annual average over the last 20 years). The liability
recognized is the difference between total estimated expenses for the entire closure and post-closure period less any
amounts spent at the end of December of the reporting year.

10. Long Term Debt
The Regional District incurs long term debt directly as well as on behalf of member municipalities. Loan agreements with the
MFA provide that if at any time the payments from member municipalities are not sufficient to meet their obligations in
respect of such borrowings, the resulting deficiency becomes a liability of the Regional District.
All long term debt is reported net of sinking fund balances. Sinking fund instalments are invested by the MFA and earn
income, which together with principal payments are expected to be sufficient to retire the debt issue at maturity. Where the
MFA has determined that sufficient funds exist to retire a debt issue on its maturity date without further instalments,
payments are suspended by the MFA and the Regional District's liability is reduced to nil. Should those funds prove to be
insufficient at maturity, the resulting deficiency becomes a liability of the Regional District.
Principal payments and sinking fund instalments due in the next five years and thereafter are as follows:

11. Restricted Revenues
Development Cost Charges are collected to pay for capital costs resulting from development. Such expenditures are
restricted by legislation for parks and water infrastructure expansions. The funds are recorded as restricted revenues when
received, and are recognized as revenue when the related expenses are incurred. In accordance with the Local Government
Act, these funds must be deposited into a separate reserve fund, each of which is established by bylaw.
Gas Tax Agreement funding is provided by the Government of Canada. The use of the funding is established by an
agreement between the Regional District and the Union of British Columbia Municipalities. The funding may be used towards
designated public transit, community energy, water, sewer, solid waste, and capacity building projects as specified in the
agreement. Gas Tax funding is recorded as restricted revenue when received, and is recognized as revenue when qualifying
expenses are incurred. Any unspent funds at the agreement end date must be returned to the Government of Canada.

15. Contingent Liabilities
Legal Claims
The Regional District is the defendant in various lawsuits and the uninsured aggregate amount of these claims is
approximately $9,535 (2012 - $37,639). In the opinion of management, the overall estimation of loss is not determinable.
These claims have not been provided for in the financial statements. Settlement, if any, made with respect to these actions
would be accounted for as a charge to expenses in the period in which the outcome of the lawsuit is known.
Municipal Insurance Association
Commencing December 31, 1987, the Regional District entered into a self-insurance program with British Columbia
municipalities and regional districts. The Regional District is obliged under the program to pay a percentage of its fellow
insureds' losses. The Regional District pays an annual premium, which is anticipated to be adequate to cover any losses
incurred.
Municipal Pension Plan
The Regional District and its employees contribute to the Municipal Pension Plan ("the plan"), a jointly trusteed pension plan.
The board of trustees, representing plan members and employers, is responsible for overseeing the management of the
plan, including investment of the assets and administration of benefits. The plan is a multi-employer contributory pension
plan. Basic pension benefits provided are based on a formula. The plan has about 179,000 active members and
approximately 71,000 retired members. Active members include approximately 80 contributors from the Regional District.
The most recent valuation as at December 31, 2012 indicated a $1,370 million funding deficit for basic pension benefits. The
next valuation will be at December 31, 2015 with results available in 2016. Employers participating in the plan record their
pension expense as the amount of employer contributions made during the fiscal year (defined contribution pension plan
accounting). This is because the plan records accrued liabilities and accrued assets for the plan in aggregate with the result
that there is no consistent and reliable basis for allocating the obligation, assets, and cost to the individual employers
participating in the plan. The Regional District paid $434,017 for employer contributions to the plan in fiscal 2013 ($384,698
in 2012).
Environmental Regulations
The Regional District is subject to various environmental regulations which cover different aspects of its operations. These
regulations may require future expenditures to meet applicable standards and subject the Regional District to potential
penalties for past violations. Any amounts required to meet obligations will be charged to expense or capitalized, as
appropriate. No amounts have been estimated at this time and no liabilities have been recorded in the current or prior year.

21. Subsequent Events
Effective January 1, 2014, agreements regarding Greater Vernon recreation facilities and parks will come into effect. The
recreation agreement will result in all Greater Vernon recreation facilities and programming coming under the control of the
City of Vernon. The parks agreement between the Regional District of North Okanagan, the City of Vernon, and the District of
Coldstream establishes a number of parks as sub-regional and under the control of the Regional District, and the remainder
as local parks and under the control of their respective jurisdictions. Pursuant to both agreements, legal ownership of certain
assets including land, buildings, and leasehold improvements will be transferred, and there will also be a distribution of a
significant amount of the existing operating surplus. It is expected that these transactions will have a material impact on the
Regional District's balance sheet in 2014 as well as impact the revenues and expenditures of future years.
22. Comparative Figures
Certain comparative figures have been reclassified to conform with the current year's presentation.

Dear Messrs. Hobson, Fairbairn, and Raven:
Re: Sterile Insect Release Board- Nomination of lndustr:v Representatives
The BC Fruit Growers' Association appreciates the inclusion of 3 growers with votes
on the SIR Board. This letter is to explain the nomination/selection process and to
nominate a representative for SIR Zone 3.
The process of selecting the 3 grower representatives is as follows:
1. The BCFGA nominates one each from the three program areas.
2. One of the three must be an organic grower.
3. Alternates may also be nominated and the alternate will have a vote in the
same manner as the regular grower representative.
The grower representatives have a vote in general operational and policy matters,
but there is a supplemental requirement for financial matters that a majority of the 5
regional district representatives is also needed.
