The Elected Voice of the Kootenays

The Association of Kootenay and Boundary Local Governments (AKBLG) is the local government association that represents the municipalities and electoral areas of the south-eastern portion of the province of British Columbia. The area includes the Regional Districts of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB), Central Kootenay (RDCK), East Kootenay (RDEK) as well as the Town of Golden and the Village of Valemount.

The AKBLG encompasses three regional districts entirely, and a part of a fourth and fifth that includes 23 electoral areas and 27 municipalities.  We are bordered by the Rockies to the east, the Okanagan to the West and the U.S. to the South.  Our municipalities range in population from the smallest in the province (Village of Silverton pop. 195) and the smallest city in Canada (Greenwood pop. 665), all the way up to the largest in our area, Cranbrook (20,047).  Our region is very rural - Cranbrook is the only AKBLG community with more than 11,000 people.
