About Island Good: Island Good was created and is managed by the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance (VIEA) to help improve business prospects for goods production in the Vancouver Island and Gulf Island region. VIEA is a unique non-profit, non-government organization that started Island Good on a shoe-string budget with a simple question: ‘If we make it easier for shoppers to identify local products, will the buy more?’ The answer, we have discovered, is a resounding ‘YES!’ And this answer leads us to an important observation: greater awareness leads to more sales and more market share which leads to increased production, investment and jobs. Island Good is good for us and good for our economy.
