CORRECTION - The NOTICE OF TOLL - 2017, first paragraph incorrectly states, "..(Bylaw 62) for the ensuing year (from October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017)."

It should read, "..(Bylaw 62) for the ensuing year (from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018)"

About Us

The Bonnington Improvement District (BID) is a local authority responsible for providing water and fire hydrants for the benefit of the residents of Bonnington, British Columbia. Improvement districts are brought into existence by the B.C. Government through Cabinet Orders which authorize the passage of a document known as a Letters Patent. The Letters Patent contain the name of the improvement district, its boundary and the services which it will provide to the residents within that boundary. For specific boundary information residents must consult the BID Letters Patent document which is available for viewing upon request.

Every improvement district is governed by a board of elected trustees (elected by area property owners). Bonnington currently has three trustees. The powers exercised by the trustees (to enact and enforce its regulations and charges, to assess and collect taxes, to acquire, hold and dispose of lands, to borrow money and to expropriate lands) flow from the improvement district’s bylaws, the Local Government Act and other provincial government legislation. There are more than 200 improvement districts operating in the Province of British Columbia.
