Cassels to moderate meeting on regional economic development

On Saturday, Nov. 7, UVic President Jamie Cassels will act as a moderator for a meeting convened by the Greater Victoria Development Agency and stakeholders to propose and discuss a new approach to regional economic development for Southern Vancouver Island. The meeting will bring together local mayors and business stakeholders, along with the presidents of Royal Roads and Camosun College, to establish consensus for participation and set goals for the region—including increases in jobs, average wages and outside investment—to be addressed by the new regional authority. Read the proposal for a new economic development approach (pdf).
