The North Island 9-1-1 Corporation was established on January 5, 1995 to manage the provision of 9-1-1 to the Comox Valley Regional District, Strathcona Regional District, Regional Districts of Mt. Waddington and Alberni-Clayoquot and a portion of the Nanaimo Regional District. The Powell River Regional District joined the service in 1999. In 2008 the Province of BC restructured the Comox Strathcona Regional District into two separate regional districts: the Comox Valley Regional District and the Strathcona Regional District. Both of these regional districts participate in the 9-1-1 service. The North Island 9-1-1 Corporation works cooperatively to provide fire, police and ambulance response for those areas.
