In British Columbia, unincorporated settlements lie outside municipal boundaries entirely, and are administered directly by regional/county-level governments similar to the American system.
Unincorporated settlements with a population of between 100 and 1,000 residents may have the status of [[designated place]] in Canadian census data.ref
Some unincorporated settlements which are not part of a larger municipality—particularly those in rural areas—may have some types of municipal services provided to them by a quasi-governmental agency such as a [[local services board (Ontario)|]] in Ontario. In New Brunswick where a significant population live in a [[Local Service District]], taxation and services may come directly from the province.
