The Board is advised by two Regional Advisory Committees comprised of the Mayors, Regional District Chairs and MLAs from the region. The Regional Advisory Committees meet two or three times a year to review funding requests and to provide strategic advice to the Board. The Chairs from each of the committees attend Board meetings as ex officio members.

The Regional Advisory Committees are defined by Provincial legislation and play a key role in governance. Their regional knowledge and ground-truth perspective provides the Board with valuable information about local needs, regional priorities and economic environment. The RACs provide each community with an equal voice in regional decision-making and development of strategy and policy.
