The SCCA held All Candidates Meetings on regional environmental issues during the municipal election campaigns of 2002, 2005, and 2008, and 2011.

The 2011 Green Issues Forum was conducted in two parts.

1)  All candidates were invited to answer four questions about watershed management, sustainability, and species at risk. Written responses were posted on this site as they came in.

2)  All candidates meetings were held for candidates for the Sunshine Coast Regional District and mayoralty candidates for the District of Sechelt and the Town of Gibsons. There was an opportunity for the public to ask questions about environmental issues.
