Vernon/North Okanagan Detachment Policing Activity Report – 2nd Quarter 2015
All crime statistics are featured at the end of this report. Statistics reflect monthly totals for April through
June 2015 and comparisons of the previous year, 2014.
Over all the Vernon/North Okanagan Detachment (V/NOD) recorded a 5.65% decrease in criminal code
cases from the previous year and property crime was down 16.17% this quarter, which can be attributed
to the great work by our prolific offender unit and general duty members.
This quarter Road Safety continues to be a priority with the traffic initiative of check-stops showing a 39%
increase over 2014. Impaired driving investigations continued their trend and were down 38.14% this
quarter from the previous year which could indicate drivers are changing their driving habits and thinking
twice before getting behind the wheel.
In May a hard working group of members from the Vernon/North Okanagan Detachment were publically
recognized for their outstanding individual contribution to removing impaired drivers from our streets and
roadways. To qualify for the annual Team Alexa Awards a member must generate a minimum of 12
impaired driving investigations, including Criminal Code investigations and Motor Vehicle Act Immediate
Roadside Prohibitions, during the calendar year. This year we had 11 members qualify for this
prestigious award, with four of those members succeeding to the All-Star Team with a minimum of 25
impaired driving investigations. VNOD represented the largest contributing detachment in the South
East District. As road safety is one the three VNOD priorities it is great to see our members contributing
in such a meaningful way.
This report reflects a representative sampling of our policing activities for the 2nd quarter of 2015.
GENERAL INVESTIGATION SECTION (GIS):
Serious Crimes Unit:
The following report is a synopsis of some of the most recent investigations that the Vernon Serious
Crimes Unit (SCU) have received and investigated.
Ongoing Major Case Updates:
•
Utter Threats/Use of Firearm:
In April police received a report that a suspect had threatened a complainant with a firearm and
bat. Preliminary investigation was completed and statements obtained from victims and
witnesses. Members of South East District Emergency Response Team arrested the suspect
when he exited the residence. Vernon SCU took conduct of the investigation, Judicial
Authorization and confession were obtained and the matter is currently before the courts.

•
•
•
Home Invasion:
In May VNOD members responded to reports of two home invasions and Vernon SCU members
assumed conduct of the investigations. The home invasions were not random and have been
determined to be associated with suspects targeting valuables and firearms. Victims were
assaulted by suspects, causing minor injuries and at one location the offence occurred in front of
children. One of the vehicles used in the offence has been recovered and searched. File is
currently being investigated.
Stolen Auto (High Risk Offender):
In May Vernon SCU received information of a stolen luxury sedan out of Kelowna which was
suspected to be housing a local violent high risk offender (HRO). Members located the vehicle in
the vicinity of the HROs’ residence and conducted several hours of surveillance however the
subject did not return to the vehicle. The vehicle was seized and forensic examination
completed. No sufficient evidence discovered to support charges and this file is concluded.
Attempted Murder:
The Vernon RCMP began investigation into the attempted murder of a person in Vernon. The
circumstances of the incident required significant coordination of resources and included multiple
crime scenes, multiple judicial authorizations and a number of witnesses. Suspect was identified
and arrested without incident; this matter is currently before the courts.
Assistance to Other Units/Investigations:
•
•
•
•
•
Dangerous Driving Causing Bodily Harm/Fail to Remain:
In May members of the Vernon SCU were made aware that a male subject suspected of
dangerous driving and failing to remain at the scene of an accident had attended the detachment.
Members of Vernon SCU obtained a warned statement from the suspect who provided a
confession to having had involvement in the incident. This matter is still under investigation by
GD members.
Assist New West PD Attempted Murder:
A member of the Vernon SCU was assigned to assist New West PD with collection of evidence
located in Vernon associated to an attempted murder in New Westminster.
Arson:
A member of the Vernon SCU provided assistance to Task Force in investigating arson of
watercraft in the City of Vernon. SCU member completed fire scene investigation.
Sudden Death:
Vernon SCU in conjunction with our Provincial Major Crime Unit assisted General Duty with the
scene exam of a sudden death in Vernon. SCU and FIS attended with the Coroner and death
determined to be suicide with no foul play suspected.
Forcible Confinement/Robbery w/Firearm:
Police received a hang up 911 call from an industrial area in Spallumcheen. Police responded
and discovered that a male had been abducted from Vernon and was forcibly confined, assaulted
with a weapon and robbed of personal effects. A suspect was arrested and a crime vehicle was
identified and seized. Forensic evidence resulted in identification of another suspect who has
been arrested. The two suspects remain in custody and this matter is currently before the courts.

August 6, 2015 - Item C.1
•
Aggravated Assault:
VNOD received a report that an older male was assaulted by a group of younger males with a
weapon and the victim was lying near the entrance of a downtown business. Several witnesses
chased the suspects into Polson Park where they were identified by an off duty member of South
East District Traffic Services. The victim was transported to hospital having received a brain injury
and skull fracture.
Domestic Violence Unit (DVU):
•
•
DVU continues to participate in the Integrated Agency meetings and to liaise with Immigration
Services, Victim Services and the Transition House to improve services to Immigrant
families. DVU applied for a grant for a pilot project which would allow victims to access much
needed counselling with the assistance of an over-the-phone translator.
DVU along with Victim Services obtained a grant to provide a workshop to local service providers
on sex offences/offenders. Approximately 85 participants attended the one day training.
TARGETED POLICING:
Task Force (TF):
•
•
•
•
•
Task Force took a lead role on a residential break and enter involving the theft of jewelry and
firearms. The investigation involved surveillance and a search warrant at the suspect’s residence
resulting in charges of break and enter, possession of stolen property over $5000.00 and
possession of property obtained by crime against a Vernon male with a lengthy criminal record.
In May Task Force conducted an investigation of suspected drug trafficking at a house in the
3100 block of 27 Street. Investigation and surveillance led to a search warrant and seizure of
drugs and stolen property and a male and female were charged with possession of drugs and
stolen property.
In June Task Force conducted an investigation into persons associated to a Provincial Tactical
Enforcement Priority target who were suspected of selling drugs via a dial-a-dope operation.
The investigation and surveillance led to the arrest of two males associated to the PTEP target
and the seizure of cocaine, heroin and cash to support possession for the purpose of trafficking
charges on both males.
Task Force provided assistance to Serious Crimes in conducting a residential search warrant in
relation to forcible confinement and robbery. During the search large quantities of cocaine,
heroin and ecstasy were located along with other drug trafficking paraphernalia to support
possession for the purpose of trafficking charges against a male and female. Upon the arrest
later of two of the suspects additional drugs were located, supporting additional charges.
Task Force provided assistance to the ongoing investigation into arsons from 2014 including
some arson events during this reporting period.
Crime Reduction Unit (CRU):
•
Crime Reduction continues to have the lead role on the investigation of several unsolved arsons
from 2014 and some recent arson events in 2015 with focus on outstanding tasks in an effort to
identify a suspect.

•
•
•
•
Crime Reduction focused efforts towards curfew checks, breaches of release and probation
conditions, and executing outstanding warrants for arrest. A total of nine persons, including three
identified prolific offenders, were targeted with success.
Crime Reduction took the lead role of a relatively minor theft and fraud investigation that involved
a prolific offender recently relocated to Vernon. The offender was remanded in custody on
outstanding warrants and transported back to the Lower Mainland.
Crime Reduction continues to have an active role in Partners in Action meetings regarding the
Green Valley Motel. In addition to these partnerships they have generated a foot patrol program
resulting in increased visual presence and enforcement in the area.
In response to an increase in theft from vehicles Crime Reduction provided assistance to the
investigation of a male found in possession of a glass breaking tool. The investigation resulted in
several charges and identified this person as the one likely responsible for several thefts. He was
released from court on conditions.
Provincial Tactical Enforcement Priority (PTEP):
•
•
•
Targeted Policing continued participating in this policing priority of identifying, profiling, selecting
and targeting individuals and/or groups that are involved in criminal activity and because of their
association to gangs/organized crime pose a safety risk to the community. There are currently
four persons/groups identified in the Vernon North Okanagan area.
Targeted Policing conducted an investigation into one of the identified targets resulting in
possession for the purpose of trafficking charges against members of the group.
A Targeted Policing and Serious Crimes investigation into one of the identified targets in relation
to a forcible confinement/robbery resulted in the target being charged and held in custody
awaiting trial.
Prolific Offender Index Offences:
•
Specific property offences indicate the level of activity of prolific offenders in the community. The
following two graphs capture the number of break and enter, theft, theft of motor vehicle, theft
from motor vehicle and possession of stolen property. One very active prolific offender can cause
a dramatic increase in one or more of these categories.

SCHOOL LIAISON MEMBER:
•
•
Cst. Szoboticsanec will be leaving the SLO position she has occupied for the past seven years
and assuming a position on a General Duty watch at the end of this quarter. A selection process
is currently underway to identify a replacement to assume this role before start of the new school
year in September. Cst Szoboticsanec is committed to ensuring the transition is smooth by
introducing the selected member to School Administration and various other partners in the
community. Cst. Dan Cocks was the successful candidate and will commence his new position in
September.
The 2015 Jean Minguy Memorial Youth Academy commenced May 2nd and proved to be another
successful event. There were 33 students from 5 school districts who participated in a week of
police related studies, physical training, leadership skills and drill. The Youth Academy could not
function without the hard work of the organizing team which included Cst. Steven Schenkeveld,
North Okanagan Traffic Services, Cst. Nick Reimann, Vernon General Duty, Cst. Brandwyn
Rigby, Lake Country Detachment and Cpl. James Moore, Revelstoke Detachment Forensic
Identification Section. We are always amazed and appreciative of the support the Youth
Academy receives from the City of Vernon and the local businesses which enable us to keep
costs low without compromising service and quality.
AUXILIARY CONSTABLES:
•
The Vernon/North Okanagan Detachment are currently training a new group of Auxiliary
Constables. They have completed their first exam and the training is proceeding as scheduled.
COMMUNITY EVENTS:

Lumby RCMP established the Read with Me, RCMP reading program which promotes students in
the primary grades “through the ranks” of the RCMP based on the number of books read.
Cst.McLaughlin attended the classrooms at J.W. Inglis monthly with certificates of promotion.
This year students at J.W. Inglis read over 7000 books and 9 students participated to the end of
the program.

•
Vernon/North Okanagan Detachment has experienced significant movement of personnel this
spring, including the recent retirement of Supt. Burgess. At this time no permanent replacement
has been identified and Insp. McNamara continues to perform the duties of the OIC on an interim
basis.

and Cpl. Proce from Lumby. The Detachment welcomes Sgt. Moyer as Watch Commander to
the City “D” Watch and Cpl. Tribes assumed the unit supervisor position in Lumby in May.
Cpl. Gerry Kovacs, who has orchestrated the various reporting activities of the detachment for the
past several years including monthly and quarterly reports and our Annual Performance Plan &

Rezoning Application
15-0231-C-RZ (Klaus & Sonja Hollenbach)
Page 2
BACKGROUND:
This report relates to an application to rezone a portion of the property located at 7616
McLennan Road from the Non-Urban (N.U) Zone to the Country Residential (C.R) Zone. If
successful in rezoning the property, the applicant is proposing a 2 lot plus remainder
subdivision.
Application History
The owners subdivided a 6.05 ha lot (Lot 1, Plan KAP83894) located northeast of the subject
property in 2007. The subdivision was completed pursuant to Section 946 of the Local
Government Act.
The owners applied for a two lot plus remainder subdivision of the subject property in 2011
which proposed lots meeting the Non-Urban minimum lot size standard of 7.2 ha. A waiver of
lot frontage for this subdivision was approved by the Board of Directors in 2014. The
subdivision application is still active; however the owners have submitted the subject rezoning
application to reduce the size of the proposed new lots.
Site Context and Proposal
The subject property is located on the west side of McLennan Road and on the east side of the
Grey Canal Trail. The property also connects to Glenhayes Road via a panhandle near the
northwest corner of the property. Access to the property is gained from an existing driveway
which connects to McLennan Road near the southeast corner of the property. The driveway
leads to a single family dwelling, barn and shop which are located in the northeast quarter of the
property. The property is partially treed and slopes downwards from McLennan Road.
The applicant is proposing to partially rezone a 4.8 ha portion of the 32.07 ha subject property
from the Non Urban zone to the Country Residential zone to potentially accommodate a 2 lot
plus remainder subdivision. The proposed new lots would be zoned Country Residential and be
approximately 2.0 ha and 2.8 ha in size. The remainder lot would continue to be zoned NonUrban and would be approximately 27.27 ha in size.
Access to proposed Lot 1 would be gained from the existing asphalt driveway while access to
proposed Lot 2 and the remainder lot would be gained from new driveways connected to
McLennan Road. The existing driveway access ranges in gradient from 5.5% to 13.4% while
the proposed driveway for Lot 2 would range between 2% and 15%. The proposed driveway for
the remainder lot would range between 2% and 14%.
The applicants are proposing individual on-site septic sewage disposal and drilled wells for each
lot. In 2015, the applicants drilled new wells on the proposed lots. The well log for proposed
Lot 1 indicates the well has a capacity of 10 US gal/min while the well log for proposed Lot 2
has a capacity of 30 US gal/min. The existing house would continue to use the existing well
which was drilled in 1998. The 1998 well log for the house indicates a capacity of 2.5 US
gal/min. Water Quality information has not been provided for any of the wells.

• East: designated Country Residential and zoned Country Residential and Non-Urban;
• South: designated Country Residential and zoned Country Residential and Non-Urban;
• West: designated Country Residential and Small Holdings and zoned Country
Residential and Small Holdings.
The following orthophoto of the subject and surrounding properties was taken in 2013.
ZONING BYLAW:
The subject property is proposed to be rezoned from Non-Urban (N.U) to Country Residential
(C.R). Uses permitted in the C.R zone include ancillary single family dwellings, bed and
breakfast use, boarding house use, community care facilities, home occupation use, intensive
agricultural use, limited resource use, manufactured homes, public parks and playgrounds,
single family dwellings, two family dwellings, veterinary clinics, wineries and cideries, work force
housing units and secondary suites.
The maximum number of dwellings permitted on 2 ha parcels in the Country Residential zone is
one Single Family Dwelling or one Two Family Dwelling. One Ancillary Single Family Dwelling

The minimum lot size standard of the C.R and N.U zones are 2.0 ha and 7.2 ha respectively.
Section 310 Building Site
All lots created within the Small Holding (S.H.), Country Residential (C.R.), Non-Urban (N.U.),
and Large Holding (L.H.) zones of the Zoning Bylaw must contain a contiguous area of land
2,000 m2 or larger in size to serve as a suitable building site. Building sites shall be less than
30% natural slope and be accessible from a public highway in accordance with the following
private access driveway design standards: Commencing at the edge of the finished road
surface, private access driveways must be as close to right angles as practicable to the finished
road surface for a minimum distance of 6 m, and have a minimum width of 5.5 m for the
distance specified above and 4 m minimum width thereafter, and have a maximum slope of 2%
from the ditch line for a minimum distance of 10 m and a maximum slope of 15% thereafter.
OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN:
The Electoral Areas “B” and “C” Official Community Plan designates the land use of the subject
property as Country Residential. The following OCP Policies are applicable to the application:
Rural Lands Policies
1. Because of the importance of water supplies for new development and the uncertainty about
water supply for some Rural Lands, assurance about water supply should be provided with
a rezoning application or an application to amend this Plan and as appropriate,
hydrogeological studies should be undertaken to determine impacts, if any, on existing wells
in the neighbourhood and the local aquifer.
2. Some lands in this Official Community Plan area are designated as Country Residential;
however, this designation does not ensure that the land would be rezoned as Country
Residential and the following information and considerations are necessary to guide a
review of any rezoning application which may or may not be approved by the Regional
District:
• maps should be submitted showing how the rezoning area can develop into the Country
Residential standard including the location of any new streets, environmental protection
measures, lot layouts and any community amenities;
• the area should not be subject to flooding, high water table or terrain instability;
• the development of the area should not require excessive expenditures for community
services such as roads, utility services and school busing;
• the terrain should be suitable for development whereby each new lot would have a
building site and driveway access in compliance with the “Zoning Bylaw”;
• each new lot shall have an area that is adequate for on-site sewage disposal with a
reserve site for on-site sewage;
• information should be provided to show how development can be supplied with an
adequate water supply as outlined in Policy 5.1.5 of this Plan;
• sensitive environmental attributes should not be negatively impacted by a higher density
of land use and in this regard, the Regional District may request that an environmental
impact analysis be undertaken;

ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
August 6, 2015 - Item E.1
Rezoning Application

•
other submissions other than those cited herein may be necessary in order to
adequately evaluate an application; and
• notwithstanding these specific considerations, the Regional District will be guided by
community goals and objectives cited in this Plan and other policies in this Plan as may
be appropriate in the consideration of any application.
3. When changing the designation of land to the Non-Urban or Country Residential
designation, due consideration will be given to site specific characteristics and site servicing
issues.
Utilities: Water Supply Policies
1. Because of the importance of water supplies for new development and the uncertainty about
water supply for some areas of the Regional District, assurance about water supply may
need to be provided with a rezoning application or an application to amend this Plan and as
appropriate, hydrogeological studies should be undertaken to determine impacts, if any, on
existing wells in the neighbourhood and the local aquifer.
Environmentally Sensitive Lands Development Permit Area
The subject property will require an Environmentally Sensitive Lands Development Permit at the
time of subdivision as a portion of the subject property falls within areas of high conservation
ranking as identified on Schedule ‘C’ of the Official Community Plan. The primary objective of
the Environmentally Sensitive Lands Development Permit Area designation is to regulate
development activities in areas of High and Very High conservation value to protect rare and
fragile terrestrial ecosystems and habitat for endangered species or native rare vegetation or
wildlife.
Wildfire Interface - Protection of Development From Hazardous Conditions
A portion of the subject property also falls within the Wildfire Interface Development Permit
Area. The primary objective of the Wildfire Interface Development Permit Area designation is to
ensure that particular development and maintenance measures are implemented to protect
persons and property from wildfire hazard, and to ensure that property owners are aware of the
wildfire hazard. It is also important that ecosystem values are addressed in wildfire mitigation
activities and not overlooked during the assessment and implementation of works. As the
subdivision would not involve more than 3 lots, the requirement for a Development Permit would
not be triggered, but would be required at the time of Building Permit.
PLANNING ANALYSIS:
The Planning Department recommends that the proposal be given favourable consideration as it
represents a rural residential land use that is consistent with the Electoral Areas “B” and “C”
Official Community Plan land use designation of the subject property and complies with the
previously noted Rural Lands Policies in that the proposed lots:
• would not be subject to flooding, high water table or terrain instability;
• would not require excessive expenditures for community services such as roads, utility
service and school busing, as such services already exist;

•
would each have building sites and private driveways that meet the requirements of the
Zoning Bylaw;
• would each have an area that is adequate for on-site sewage disposal with a reserve site for
on-site sewage;
• would each have an on-site water supply that meets the requirements of the Subdivision
Servicing Bylaw;
• prior to final subdivision approval the applicants will need to complete an Environmentally
Sensitive Lands Development Permit which will identify natural features and other sensitive
environmental attributes which should not be negatively impacted by the higher density of
land use.
It is also noted that the property is designated as being within a Rural Protection Area of the
Regional Growth Strategy (RGS). The proposal is consistent with the Policies of the RGS for
lands designated as Rural Protection Areas.
Staff also recommend that adoption of Rezoning Bylaw No. 2689, 2015 be withheld until the
Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has endorsed the Bylaw in accordance with the
requirements of Section 52(3) of the Transportation Act.
SUMMARY:
This report relates to an application to rezone a 4.8 ha portion of the property located at 7616
McLennan Road from the Non-Urban (N.U) Zone to the Country Residential (C.R) Zone. If
successful in rezoning the property, the applicant is proposing a 2 lot plus remainder
subdivision. The Planning Department recommends that the proposal be given favourable
consideration as the proposed subdivision is generally consistent with the Electoral Areas “B”
and “C” Official Community Plan Rural Lands Policies. Staff also recommend that Adoption of
Rezoning Bylaw No. 2689, 2015 be withheld until the Ministry of Transportation and
Infrastructure has endorsed the Bylaw in accordance with the requirements of Section 52(3) of

PROPOSAL:
Boundary adjustment subdivision
PROPOSED VARIANCE:
Setback of an existing free standing sign
PLANNING DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION:
That upon consideration of input from adjacent landowners, a Development Variance Permit be
issued for the property legally described as Lot A, Sec 14, Twp 8, ODYD, Plan KAP83645 and
located at 6425 Highway 97, Electoral Area “B” to vary Section 1401.4.f.i of the Regional District
of North Okanagan Zoning Bylaw No. 1888, 2003 by reducing the front yard setback of an
existing free standing sign from 1.0 m to 0.0 m as shown on the site plan attached to the
Planning Department report dated July 10, 2015; and further,
That the issuance of the Development Variance Permit be withheld until the Ministry of
Transportation and Infrastructure has issued an encroachment permit for the free standing sign.
BACKGROUND:
This report relates to a Development Variance Permit application for the property located at
6425 Highway 97, Electoral Area “B”. The property contains a vehicle dealership (Honda). The
owners are proposing a boundary adjustment subdivision with the adjacent property to the
south. Prior to final subdivision approval, the proposed subdivision requires the issuance of a
Page 44 of 80
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
August 6, 2015 - Item E.2
Development Variance Permit
15-0206-B-DVP (Scott McPherson)
Page 2
Development Permit for the Form and Character of Commercial Development in accordance
with requirements of Electoral Areas “B” and “C” Official Community Plan. A variance to Section
1401.4.f.i of the Regional District Zoning Bylaw has also been requested in order to reduce the
front yard setback requirement for an existing free standing sign from 1.0 m to 0.0 m.
Application History
A Development Permit with Variance was issued in 1993 for the construction of a car dealership
(Honda) at 6425 Highway 97. The site plan provided with the application identified a proposed
free standing sign to be located on the subject property in accordance with the setback
requirements of the day. The Development Permit with Variance allows a height variance for
the free standing sign to a maximum of 7.62 m. A Building Permit was obtained for the
dealership building but a Sign Permit was not obtained for the free standing sign.
In 2003, a Development Permit was issued to permit an expansion to the Honda dealership
building and replacement of the free standing sign. The Permit notes the sign was to be sited in
accordance with the 1993 issued DP. The new sign was proposed to be 7.32 m in height. The
existing sign is consistent with the drawings of the sign proposed in the 2003 DP application. A
Building Permit was obtained for the dealership addition but a Sign Permit was not obtained for
the free standing sign.
Proposal
The subject property contains an existing vehicle dealership (Honda). The owner is proposing a
boundary adjustment subdivision with the adjacent property to the south. In processing the
subdivision application, it was determined that the existing free standing Honda sign is located
on the adjacent highway right-of-way and as such does not conform to the setback
requirements of the Zoning Bylaw. In this regard, the owner has requested a variance to this
provision of the Zoning Bylaw.
Site Context
The subject property is located on the north side of Highway 97 and the south side of Pleasant
Valley Road. Access to the subject property is gained from a driveway which connects to the
service road adjacent to Highway 97. A secondary access also connects to Pleasant Valley
Road. The property is generally flat and is used for the retail sales (including service and repair)
of automobiles (Honda). A principle building is located near the middle of the property. The
property is serviced by Greater Vernon Water Utility and an on-site holding tank.
The subject property is zoned Highway and Tourist Commercial (C.2) and is designated as
Commercial in the Electoral Areas “B” and “C” Official Community Plan. The property to the
north is zoned Service Commercial (C.4) and the properties to the south are zoned Highway
and Tourist Commercial (C.2). The properties to the southeast are zoned Residential. The
properties to the north and south are designated as Commercial in the OCP. The property to
the east (across Pleasant Valley Road) is zoned Country Residential (C.R), is located within the
Agricultural Land Reserve and is designated in the OCP as Agricultural.

The following orthophoto of the subject and surrounding property was taken in 2013.
ZONING BYLAW:
The subject property is zoned Highway and Tourist Commercial (C.2). Uses permitted in the
C.2 zone include accessory buildings and structures, accommodation, food service, retail sales
(including parts and accessories), service and repair, and transportation facilities.
Section 1401.4.f.i of the Zoning Bylaw states that the setback of free standing signs from all
property lines shall be not less than 1.0 metre (3.281 feet).
ELECTORAL AREAS “B” AND “C” OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN:
The Electoral Areas “B” and “C” OCP states that all land designated as 'Commercial' are
designated as Development Permit Areas for the establishment of guidelines for the form and
character of commercial development. Subdivisions must obtain a Development Permit as a
condition precedent to subdivisions approval. On reviewing a Development Permit Application,
the Board of Directors is to consider the following guidelines:
1. General principles of building siting and design are provided to help guide quality building
standards appropriate to the plan area as follows:
a. the massing of buildings should be variable in form and should be incorporated where
practical, into smaller blocks;
b. where more than one building is to be constructed on the site, the buildings should share
common architectural features;
c. exterior design and finish should incorporate products which complement the natural
setting and include materials in earth tone colours that are characteristic of the region
such as smooth face brick, stucco, stone, natural stained or painted wood, or some
combination of the above;

d. the form and character of development and landscaping should harmonize with the
natural setting and any proposed development and landscaping should:
i.
include groups of large native tree species that will be used to stabilize graded
areas; and
e. retain significant existing vegetation to maintain the existing character of the area. This
is especially important when development occurs adjacent to established rural and low
density residential areas; where commercial or industrial properties border lands that
are in the Agricultural Land Reserve a buffer of sufficient width should be provided
between highway commercial uses and agricultural lands. The buffer must be
landscaped but should not be incorporated into the overall land use activities.
New development must provide safe and efficient vehicle entrances, exits and site
circulation minimizing conflicts between vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Vehicle parking
should be encouraged at the rear or side of a building and should be broken into smaller
groups, and the smaller groups should be separated with landscaping or natural vegetation
while still maintaining sight distances for safe access and egress.
Locate and orientate appropriate site uses to take advantage of views of the lake and valley
setting and maintain open sight lines between the highway and Swan Lake;
Encourage variety in the building form, architecture and uses of commercial sites;
Use site planning, building design and landscaping to:
a. Reduce negative visual impacts of development, particularly as seen from Highway 97,
Pleasant Valley Road and the Swan Lake area in general; and
b. Preserve open space amenities that reflect the rural, natural and residential context of
the area. Develop open space amenities that provide relief from expansive commercial
development.
c. Provide continuous pedestrian access and circulation along the length of the Swan Lake
Corridor as identified in Schedule H.
Building frontages should face collector road, cross streets or the common
parking/circulation space.
Encourage the arrangement of highway commercial uses in clusters. Cluster developments
are characterized by shared driveways, common parking/circulation space and free-standing
or shared buildings.
Discourage flat building facades. Encourage the use of projections, building “additions” and
articulated rooflines, eaves, entrances, windows, walkways, stairwells, patios and public use
areas.
Discourage the location and arrangement of buildings with blank walls facing the lake and
valley.
Guidelines for the use and development of signs in the Commercial Development Permit Area
are provided due to the visual sensitivity of the area in general (e.g. Highway 97 corridor, Swan
Lake, orchard slopes, entrance route to the City of Vernon). The following guidelines are
provided to supplement the requirements of the Zoning Bylaw and are applicable to
development and use of signs and signage in Electoral Areas “B” & “C”:
1. Signs should complement the architecture, material and finish of the building(s) they
advertise.
2. The placement of private signage and use or business-specific signage should be
discouraged:
a. On property other than that which the business or use is resident;
b. Within the highway corridor;
c. Within the railway corridor;

ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
August 6, 2015 - Item E.2
Development Variance Permit
15-0206-B-DVP (Scott McPherson)
Page 5
d. Within or facing Pleasant Valley Road, unless the business or use fronts on Pleasant
Valley Road; and
e. On any lands designated rural or open space.
3. The development and use of the following shall be prohibited:
a. Billboards;
b. Roof-top signs;
c. High-mast signs;
d. Portable or wheel-mounts signs;
e. Signs with temporal lettering capability (e.g. electric lights, magnetic, stick-on, and
channel lettering), except within the Swan Lake Commercial Corridor;
f. Encourage the development and placement of directional logo signage that serves all
business and uses which share common land use designations. The intent is to raise
the profile of an area and identify it as a destination where goods and services are
available.
PLANNING ANALYSIS:
The subject property is designated in the Electoral Areas “B” and “C” Official Community Plan
as Commercial. As the owner is proposing a boundary adjustment subdivision, prior to final
subdivision approval, the issuance of a Development Permit for form and character of
commercial development is required. A DP has previously been issued for the subject property
and no new buildings are proposed. Overall, it is suggested that the property has been
developed in accordance with the requirements of the previously approved DP and that the
proposed subdivision is generally consistent with the current OCP DP Guidelines. Should the
Board authorize the issuance of a Development Variance Permit for the subject sign, the
Planning Department will proceed with authorizing the issuance of a Development Permit for
form and character of commercial development in accordance with the Regional District
Delegation Bylaw No. 2555.
Through this application, the applicant is requesting a variance to Section 1401.4.f.i the Zoning
Bylaw in order to allow an existing free standing sign to continue to be located on a highway
right-of-way. The variance would allow the 1.0 setback requirement to be waived.
The Planning Department recommends that the proposed variance be supported for the
following reasons:
1. the width of the highway right-of-way adjacent to the subject property is wider than that of
the adjacent properties to the south. As such, the sign has roughly the same setback from
the travelled portion of the frontage road as other nearby signs;
2. the Ministry of Transportation has stated that they are willing to issue an encroachment
permit for the sign and they do not have concerns regarding the signs location;
3. the Bylaw Enforcement Officer has also not received complaints regarding the free standing
sign;
4. overall, it doesn’t appear that the setback of the sign has a negative impact on the use and
enjoyment of the adjacent properties.

SUMMARY:
The subject Development Variance Permit application proposes to reduce the setback
requirement for an existing free standing sign located on a highway right-of-way next to the
property located at 6425 Highway 97. The Planning Department recommends that that upon
consideration of input from adjacent land owners, the proposed variance related to the existing
sign be supported as the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has no objections to the
sign being located on the highway right-of-way and it does not appear as though the sign
negatively impacts the use and enjoyment of the neighbouring properties.
REFERRAL COMMENTS:
The application was referred for comments to the following:

Electoral Area "B" Director
Electoral Area "B" Advisory Planning Commission
Electoral Area Advisory Committee

Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure
The Ministry of Transportation commented they have no objections, in principle, to this
proposal as the existing encroaching landscaping and sign have not posed safety of
maintenance issues to date. However the landowner will have to apply for and receive
an encroachment permit for the landscaping (and sign for Honda) which is currently
located within provincial road right of way. The Ministry is willing to issue an
encroachment permit for the sign and landscaping upon receipt of applications from the
land owners.

Electoral Areas "D" and "E" Official Community Plan Regional
Context Statement
SUBJECT:
RECOMMENDATION:
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors, the Electoral Areas “D” and “E” Official Community
Plan Amendment Bylaw 2690, 2015 be given First Reading and considered in conjunction with the
Regional District
(i)
financial plan and
(ii)
waste management plan
pursuant to Section 882 of the Local Government Act; and further,
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors, Bylaw No. 2690, 2015 be referred to various
agencies and First Nations in accordance with Section 879 of the Local Government Act; and further,
That it be recommended to the Board of Directors, Bylaw No. 2690, 2015 be referred to the Electoral
Areas “D” and “E” Advisory Planning Commissions for review and comment.
DISCUSSION:
The Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) is the coordinating plan for the Regional District of North
Okanagan and member municipalities on matters affecting the management of growth and regional
sustainability. The RGS provides partners with a framework to achieve shared goals while maintaining
the autonomy of local jurisdictions in their community planning decisions. The Regional District of North
Okanagan received $250,000 from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) Regionally
Significant Projects Grant in February 2013 to coordinate Regional Context Statement (RCS)
development and provide assistance, staff and financial resources in developing 10 municipal and
Electoral Area RCSs.
In June 2014 an Electoral Areas “D” and “E” RCS work plan was brought forward to the Electoral Area
Advisory Committee for endorsement. Due to other priority projects and limited capacity within the
Planning Department to initiate this work, staff are proposing a condensed work plan with final adoption
of the RCS occurring by end of the year, when the grant monies expire. The Electoral Areas “D” and
“E” OCP RCS project was allocated $11,500 from the Regionally Significant Projects Gas Tax Grant to
support RCS development.

August 6, 2015 - Item E.4
Electoral Areas "D" and "E" Official Community Plan Regional Context Statement
Report to Electoral Area Advisory Committee – July 20, 2015
Page 2
A draft RCS has been developed for the Electoral Areas “D” and “E’ Official Community Plan (OCP)
Bylaw No. 2485, 2011, attached as Bylaw No. 2690, 2015. The RCS summarizes how the OCP aligns
with and supports the nine policy areas of the RGS.
BACKGROUND/HISTORY:
The Regional District of North Okanagan adopted the RGS Bylaw No. 2500 on September 21, 2011,
following acceptance by all affected local governments (including the City of Armstrong, District of
Coldstream, City of Enderby, Village of Lumby, Township of Spallumcheen, City of Vernon and adjacent
regional districts) and endorsement by the Electoral Area Advisory Committee.
The Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP was under review during the development and adoption of the
RGS. During the OCP’s policy development, draft RGS goals and strategies were taken into
consideration. The OCP began the adoption process in May 2011 and was adopted on March 21, 2012.
The OCP currently does not include a RCS.
REVISED CONSULTATION PLAN:
To ensure that the RCS is aligned with the RGS in a way that retains and reflects the unique attributes
of the OCP, a period of review has been included that will involve Planning Department staff, the
Electoral Area Advisory Committee and both the Electoral Areas’ Advisory Planning Commissions
(APCs).
For Electoral Areas, the goals, objectives and policies in an OCP must not be in conflict with the goals
and policies of the RGS. Section 865(1) of the Local Government Act requires that: “All bylaws adopted
by a regional district board after the board has adopted a regional growth strategy, and all services
undertaken by a regional district after the board has adopted a regional growth strategy, must be
consistent with the regional growth strategy”.
This means that an electoral area OCP, because it is adopted by bylaw, must be consistent with the
RGS and a RCS is one mechanism that can be used to demonstrate that consistency. It is important
to note that formal acceptance of an Electoral Area RCS is not required under Section 866 because the
Board of Directors adopts an Electoral Area OCP Bylaw. The Regional District will be considering
endorsement of Electoral Area RCSs prior to final Bylaw adoption. The adoption of an Electoral Area
OCP Bylaw Amendment [RCS] will follow the normal OCP adoption process, as specified in Section
882 of the Local Government Act.
The revised RCS work plan, as represented in Table 1 below, outlines the tasks, target dates and
resulting deliverables.

Staff Report: BoD Adopted OCP Amendment Bylaw [RCS] CONSULTATION REQUIREMENTS:
Section 879 of the Local Government Act states that during amendment of an OCP, such as when
developing and adopting a RCS, a jurisdiction must consider what opportunities will be provided for
early consultation and with whom. The local government must:
(a) consider whether the opportunities for consultation with one or more of the persons,
organizations and authorities should be early and ongoing; and,
(b) specifically consider whether consultation is required with:
i. the board of the regional district in which the area covered by the plan is located, in the
case of a municipal official community plan;
ii. the board of any regional district that is adjacent to the area covered by the plan;
iii. the council of any municipality that is adjacent to the area covered by the plan;
iv. first nations;
v. school district boards, greater boards and improvement district boards; and,
vi. the provincial and federal governments and their agencies.
The level of consultation on the development of RCSs, beyond what is required under Section 879, is
at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Based upon the extensive public consultation that was
undertaken during the development of the RGS and the Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP Review, it is
the opinion of staff that consultation requirements, as specified in Section 879, are the appropriate level
of consultation for the preparation of a OCP Amendment Bylaw.
ANALYSIS:
The Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP contains policies that address: Environment; Agricultural &
Resource Use; Rural, Rural Residential & Residential Use; Commercial; Industrial; Special Use Areas;
Quality of Life; Transportation & Servicing; Economy and Development Permit Areas.
The RCS has been developed as a mechanism to convey the consistency of the OCP’s policies and
approach with the goals and strategies of the RGS.

Urban Containment and Rural Protection:
The OCP policy framework restricts urban uses and development outside the Rural Protection
Boundary and directs residential and commercial growth towards municipal Growth Areas (Lumby),
which supports the RGS goal of creating a compact urban area. There is a policy which supports
development within the “downtown” Cherryville area however this is predicated on appropriate
servicing. The Rural Protection Boundary does not reflect the potential for development in downtown
Cherryville and will need to be examined during the RGS 5 year review to ensure consistency between
the two plans.
Agriculture and Food Systems:
The OCP supports a robust and diverse agricultural sector by reinforcing the Agricultural Land
Commission in its efforts to protect and enhance farmland. The OCP also contains policies which
supports the production, processing, sale and distribution of locally grown products.
Water Stewardship
The RCS acknowledges the importance of water identifying the OCP supporting policies which address
the many dimensions of water sustainability and responsible water management.
Environment and Natural Lands
The RCS highlights the unique natural features found within the OCP plan area recognizing the need
to preserve and protect these natural assets. The OCP policy framework supports the three goals and
twenty-three policies that address a number of environmental and natural land issues, including
watershed management, environmentally sensitive areas, parks and open spaces, and pollution
reduction.
Economic Development
The RCS acknowledges the reliance of Area “D” and “E” residents on primary industries, mainly forestry,
and agriculture for their livelihood and the need for a diversified regional approach to economic
development. The RCS identities how the OCP supports opportunities that are compatible with the
rural character of the Electoral Areas, including: home occupation; communication connectivity;
agriculture – local food production; and artistic events and festivals that provide economic benefits to
the community.
Transportation and Infrastructure
The RCS identifies how the OCP supports a variety of transportation options that are appropriate within
the rural area and provides direction regarding alternative active transportation routes within
communities, including trails and multi-use paths.
Housing
The Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP policy framework supports a range of housing options appropriate
within a rural context, including secondary suites and mobile homes and recognizes that social housing
and affordable housing projects benefit from being in close proximity to an urban location.
Governance and Service Delivery
The RCS acknowledges the need for regional collaboration and community involvement in initiatives to
provide efficient, effective and fiscally responsible services that respond to community needs.
Energy and Emissions:
The OCP has adopted the RGS Green House Reduction target with supporting policies that are
achievable within the rural context of Electoral Areas “D” and “E”. This approach is consistent with the
strategic direction of the RGS.

AND WHEREAS the Board is desirable and expedient to amend “Electoral Areas “D” and “E”
Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 2485, 2011”.
NOW THEREFORE, the Board of the Regional District of North Okanagan in an open meeting
assembled, hereby ENACTS AS FOLLOWS:
CITATION
1. This Bylaw may be cited as “Electoral Areas “D” and “E” Official Community Plan
Amendment Bylaw No. 2690, 2015”.
AMENDMENTS
2. That Schedule “A” attached to and forming part of Electoral Areas “D” and “E” Official
Community Plan Bylaw No. 2485, 2011 and amendments thereto be amended by including the
following as Sections 1.6 and 1.7 and renumbering the remaining Sections accordingly:
1.6 REGIONAL GROWTH STRATEGY (RGS)
The North Okanagan Regional Growth Strategy Bylaw No. 2500, 2011 was adopted by the
Regional District on September 21, 2011. The Regional Growth Strategy provides an
integrated strategic policy framework for addressing growth management, compact complete
communities, economic development, transportation, other infrastructure, environmental
concerns and long term regional sustainability, resilience and prosperity. These policies
play three key roles:
1) Provide direction for implementing the Regional Growth Strategy;
Page 62 of 80
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
August 6, 2015 - Item E.4
Bylaw No. 2690
Page 2 of 4
2) Create a common strategic framework for planning at various levels within the North
Okanagan; and,
3) Provide the vision for all levels of government to strive towards.
Much of the implementation of the Regional Growth Strategy occurs through local planning
and actions. The Regional Context Statement identifies the relationship between the OCP
and the policies included within the Regional Growth Strategy.
1.7 REGIONAL CONTEXT STATEMENT
The Electoral Areas “D” and “E” Official Community Plan is required by the Local
Government Act to include a Regional Context Statement that identifies the relationship
between the Official Community Plan and the Regional Growth Strategy.
While the OCP and the RGS are separate documents, their content is inter-related. The
OCP is a comprehensive document which provides direction for the management of growth
in the rural unincorporated communities of Electoral Areas “D” and “E” over a twenty year
period. The OCP contains goals and a policy framework which directly supports the twentyone goals of the RGS.
In accordance with Section 865 of the Local Government Act, this OCP must be consistent
with the RGS. All policies in the Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP are consistent with, or
complementary to, the goals and policies of the RGS.
The RGS identifies nine key policy areas covering a broad range of issues. Within each
policy area, the RGS has one or more goals, followed by more specific strategies. The
Regional Context Statement illustrates how the OCP will assist in achieving the goals and
strategies established in the RGS.
Urban Containment and Rural Protection
The OCP aligns with the RGS goal of focusing development into Growth Areas by
encouraging residential use (lots less than 1 ha in size) to be located within the Village of
Lumby and not within the plan area. This is done in an effort to protect rural lands. Official
Community Plan policy 5.3.3 does indicate support for residential development in the
“downtown” Cherryville area upon receipt of a comprehensive plan showing servicing
details. Such a development would require a community sewer system. The current RGS
rural protection area does not contemplate this type of development in downtown Cherryville
but can be considered in the Five-year review to ensure consistency between the plans.
Agriculture and Food Systems
Agricultural lands within Electoral Areas “D” & “E” support extensive agricultural uses such
as forage and livestock production which contribute to the rural character of the area. The
Agricultural policies of the OCP support a robust and diverse agricultural sector protecting
and enhancing farmland by establishing minimum parcel sizes and setbacks to minimize the
potential for land use conflicts and support long term agricultural use.
Water Stewardship
The OCP supports the RGS goal of managing water sustainability so all reasonable needs,
including agriculture, are met in a balanced manner. The communities of Electoral Areas
“D” and “E” recognize the value of water, supporting policies within the OCP include: public
education on water supply and water testing; encouraging water conservation for all land
uses and implementation of new technologies to reduce water use; and collaboration with
Page 63 of 80
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
August 6, 2015 - Item E.4
Bylaw No. 2690
Page 3 of 4
the province to ensure data collected through the development review process contributes to
a greater understanding of water resources over the long term.
Environment and Natural Lands
Electoral Areas “D” and “E” contain a diversity of natural features such as lakes, streams,
hills, valleys, forests and open space which are home to various species such as raptors,
owls, songbirds and amphibians. Many of the natural features are in a delicate balance that
may be disturbed by pollution and development. The plan area contains significant natural
features that help define the community and its landscapes including: Mabel Lake, Sugar
Lake, Shuswap River, Rawlings Lake; Upper Shuswap and Monashee Park, Canyons and
Open Mature Forests with large stems; Camel’s Hump and Shuswap Falls. The OCP
contains a number of policies which support the RGS in developing consistent, integrated
environmental policies that will protect water ecosystem function, drinking water sources,
and conserve and enhance biodiversity and ecological services within the Region. Policy
areas include: Environmentally sensitive areas; Watercourse and riparian areas; Wildlife;
Floodplains & Alluvial Fans; Wildfire policies; Tree retention and tree expansion policies;
Energy and Conservation Policies; and Climate Change Policies.
Economic Development
The RGS promotes a regional approach to economic development and encourages a
sustainable, resilient and diverse economy. The Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP supports
the RGS goal of economic diversity to create a more sustainable future with various policies
including: fostering a wood culture -ensuring a livelihood for area residents; recognizing the
importance of communication connectivity for businesses and families in rural areas;
supporting initiatives to promote local food production and sale of produce and other local
food products; promoting tourism development; incubating local business- machine shops
and manufacturers, wildcrafting, herbal products, farmer’s markets, home based businesses
and home occupations; and supporting annual sporting and artistic events and festivals as
important economic benefits to the community.
Transportation and Infrastructure
The RGS supports integrated regional transportation planning as well as managing regional
transportation corridors. There is also a commitment to create effective, efficient and
sustainable transportation infrastructure.
The Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP
acknowledges Highway 6 as the main highway corridor within the plan area. Over the years
efforts have been made to plan a transportation network with efficient linkages between and
within the rural areas. The Canadian National Railway line from Coldstream to Lumby has
been designated as a transportation corridor. The OCP is supportive of the development of
a Bicycle and Trail Network Plan which would consider crossovers between the road and
trail network and opportunities for alternative transportation modes including: bicycle routes,
trails, a Handi-dart, community van, carpool and car co-operatives.
Housing
Housing choice and affordability was identified as one of the most significant challenges
facing the communities of the North Okanagan during the public consultation process for the
RGS. It is a goal of the RGS to provide for a variety of housing options to meet the diverse
needs of all residents within the region. Within the Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP
secondary suites and manufactured homes have been identified as a form of affordable
housing within the rural areas. The OCP does acknowledge that social housing and
affordable housing projects benefit from being in close proximity to an urban location (e.g.
Lumby). The OCP also recognizes that the Electoral Area Zoning Bylaw supports a second
Page 64 of 80
ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
August 6, 2015 - Item E.4
Bylaw No. 2690
Page 4 of 4
dwelling in some zones for family members as a strategy to support aging in place with the
ultimate goal of providing additional housing opportunities for seniors.
Governance and Service Delivery
The RGS strives to support regional governance based upon a foundation of regional
cooperation while pursuing efficient, effective and fiscally responsible service delivery.
Residents within Electoral Areas “D” and “E” have indicated support for community
participation in local government initiatives to encourage community engagement and
regional collaboration.
Energy and Emissions
Beginning in 2007, the province of British Columbia moved forward with a number of actions
designed to encourage energy efficiency and reduce emissions of Green House Gases. The
Local Government Act requires that the Regional Growth Strategy include a GHG target and
actions. The RGS has committed to a GHG emissions reduction of 15% by 2020 and 25%
by 2030 from 2007 GHG emission levels. The Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP supports the
regional target and has committed to a 25% reduction in community emissions by 2030 from
2007 GHG emission levels. Strategies and Actions have been identified including promoting
pedestrian and cycling facilities; supporting provincial and federal programs to encourage
energy retrofits; reduction of landfill waste; support for Smart Growth planning principles as
applicable to rural areas and protection of ecosystems that perform essential ecosystem
services such as cleaning air and purifying water.

TC wants to contribute to projects that not only generate results, but that can report on these results
to Canadians. The BSCP will assess project elements that applicants plan to measure, the proposed
results these actions will achieve, and how they align with BSCP objectives.

affordable manner.
Other Criteria
The BSCP selection process will also:
%
seek to fund a variety of initiatives;
%
balance innovation (new projects) versus enhancing of existing initiatives;
%
seek regional balance;
%
favour proposals that identify a combination of cash outlay and in-kind contributions over those
with only in-kind support; and
%

We have designed our assessment process to ensure that qualified projects represent the best value
to BSCP’s objectives and expected results.

3.0 FUNDING AGREEMENTS
A funding agreement signed by both the recipient and TC is required to receive BSCP funding.
;OL°MVSSV^PUNZLJ[PVUZOPNOSPNO[ZVTLVM[OLRL`HYLHZVM[OPZSLNHSKVJ\TLU[
3.1 Risk-Based Funding Agreements
The BSCP will conduct a project risk assessment for all approved projects before signing a funding
agreement. We do not do this to exclude or screen out projects but to ensure that the requirements
set out in the funding agreement are appropriate for the project risk level and a recipient’s capacity
to deliver results. For example, the recipient and project risk assessment will determine:
%
how often the recipient must report project progress;
%
financial documentation the recipient must submit with payment claims;
%
OV^VM[LU):*7Z[HMM^PSSTHRLZP[L]PZP[Z^P[OHUKVYJVU[HJ[[OLYLJPWPLU["HUK
%
audit requirements (all funding agreements indicate Canada’s right to audit).
A risk assessment will be conducted and based on but not limited to, the information that is
WYV]PKLK\UKLY:LJ[PVU°PU[OPZHWWSPJHU[»ZN\PKL
3.2 Project Scope and Agreement
The applicant’s proposal will form the foundation to define the project scope, mandatory legal
documentation, clauses, terms and conditions, performance measurements and payment structure
in the formal funding agreement. Once the funding agreement is signed, no change to the scope
of the project (including budget, structure, timelines, etc.) is possible without written agreement
between the recipient and TC.
Note: It is very important to clearly define the scope of the project in the application because the
recipient will be responsible for all costs associated with work performed outside the approved
scope of a project, without pre-approval from TC.
3.3 Reporting Requirements
Reporting requirements will be set out in each agreement, and will include financial claims, progress
reports and a final report.
Financial Claims
Recipients must submit claims for reimbursement of expenditures incurred at specific intervals, at
least on a semi-annual or annual basis. The BSCP will provide recipients with templates that reflect
the eligible expenses as agreed to in the funding agreement.
Progress Reports
Recipients must submit progress reports describing the progress achieved at specific intervals and
attach them to the financial claims.
Page 74 of 80

ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA
August 6, 2015 - Item E.5
Final Reports
When the project is complete, recipients must submit a final claim for reimbursement along with
a final report. The final report serves as a roll-up and verification of all project activities, costs and
outcomes. Under the funding agreement, the BSCP must receive the final report before it will pay
[OL°MPUHSL_WLUZLJSHPT
Recipients will receive guidelines for the final report, which must include:
%
a general description of the Project’s major achievements, including any changes to original
activities and timelines;
%
an overall assessment of the objectives met, outcomes achieved, and lessons learned;
%
updated data on performance indicators indicated in funding agreement compared to the start
of the project and how they were used to measure the achievement of the Project’s outcomes;
%
examples of any promotional items produced during the Project; and
%
HU`Z\Y]L`ZHUHS`ZLZYLWVY[ZHUKVYYLZLHYJOHZZVJPH[LK[V[OL7YVQLJ[
3.4 Other Reporting Requirements - Performance Reporting
TC collects useful and accurate performance data that demonstrates results for Canadians. This is
why collecting and reporting on meaningful data to assess progress against the desired outcomes is
a key requirement of all funding agreements.
The data is collected for the purpose of performance measurement and reporting to Canadians.
3.5 Other Funding Agreement Clauses
Official Languages
All recipients must respect the spirit and intent of the Official Languages Act when delivering a
project funded under the BSCP. Linguistic requirements may apply to projects depending on their
scope (national, regional or local), or on the specificity of the regions and targeted audiences of
projects. TC will work with successful recipients to determine how this will apply to their projects.
