Forum Explores Island Transportation Issues

In the minds of many, the No. 1 barrier to a vibrant, growing, competitive and sustainable Island economy is transportation.

Cost, reliability, frequency, efficiency, connectivity continue as critical issues getting people, goods and materials to, from and around Vancouver Island.
To discuss and explore these issues, transportation stakeholders from across the Island will be participating in the Moving Forward: Vancouver Island Transportation Forum in Victoria on March 31. An extension of the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance’s (VIEA) annual ‘State of the Island’ Economic Summit, the session looks to further the conversation on how to develop a bold, comprehensive intermodal transportation plan.
Representatives from organizations such as Nanaimo Airport, Nanaimo Port Authority, Greater Victoria Harbour Authority, ColdStar Solutions, Comox Airport, Tofino Airport, Southern Rail, Port Alberni Port Authority, Blackball Ferries, Island Ferries, BC Transit, Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District, Harbour Air, Tourism Victoria and others will be participating in a presentation/dialogue showcasing their ideas and initiatives.
Register HERE for the session, which is being hosted by VIEA in partnership with Douglas Magazine, Chemistry Consulting and the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce.
