A recycling starter package is being delivered to every household the last week of April.
This starter package includes a 30 bag supply of recycling bags, a detailed list of accepted materials as well as a revised collection schedule. Once all the recycling bags in the starter package are used up, households will need to purchase their own translucent plastic bags.

For any questions not addressed online, or in your starter package, please email: pw@terrace.ca or call 250-615-4021.

Thank you in advance for familiarizing your household with this new program, especially the list of accepted/not accepted materials. Your participation will make this new program a success!

Community Services Guide

Posted on: Jan 29 2010 - 12:11pm in

The recent announcement that West Fraser is permanently shutting down its Eurocan operations in Kitimat means that residents in the Kitimat-Terrace Valley will face some challenges as jobs are lost in the region.

The District of Kitimat, City of Terrace and the RuralBC Secretariat, along with many community partners, have been working together to develop a Transition Strategy in response to the announcement.  This strategy is aimed at finding ways to help displaced workers from Eurocan and other businesses affected by the closure.

This Guide was designed to create one source of information for special programs, employment services, community and social services, worker adjustment and retraining opportunities in Terrace and Kitimat.  There is also information about government funding and financial services.

The Kitimat & Terrace Community Services Guide is sponsored by the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Community and Rural Development, Community Development Trust, and by Northern Savings Credit Union through its Community Reinvestment and Corporate Responsibility Initiative.  We gratefully acknowledge this financial support.

We sincerely hope this information will guide you to the experts who can help.  Together, we can move forward to the future.

Joanne Monaghan - Mayor, District of Kitimat

Measuring up the North: Terrace

Posted on: Jan 01 2010 - 3:54pm in

As part of the Measuring Up the North initiative made up of 41 communities in the North, in 2007 the City of Terrace Council appointed volunteer community members interested in improving Terrace's accessibility for persons with disabilities, seniors and families with small children.  The Measuring Up Terrace Committee fulfilled its mandate and was dissolved by City Council in March 2012.

The City's Measuring Up Terrace Committee received grant funding through 2010 Legacies Now which enabled the Committee to hire a Co-ordinator who worked with the Committee to conduct a Community Assessment and Strategic Plan.  In addition, the funding provided money to undertake some small projects that will help to improve accessibility in the community.

A Community Assessment Survey was distributed throughout the community seeking input on the City's existing level of accessibility, and for suggestions on how to make Terrace more inclusive and accessible.  Responses were collected until July 31, 2008, and results of the survey are posted below:
