Senior Economist, Susan Mowbray, partner at MNP, will highlight key findings in her presentation at the October 27/28 Economic Summit.

It is no secret that we are experiencing rapid change in economic landscape and that COVID implications continue. The ‘State of the Island’ Economic report is a powerful tool for decision-makers navigating this new landscape. As we explore how we will adapt, it is critical to understand how industry sectors are affected, the trajectory for recovery, and emerging trends that appear in the new data.

This year’s editorial themes will feature sustainable development, challenges and opportunities in our urban and rural economies, and a look at significant change in aquaculture and forest industries.

The Economic Report is essential reading for anyone serious about business on Vancouver Island in 2021 and beyond.

The Economic Report is made possible because of the production sponsorship of MNP and by additional sponsorship from the Nanaimo Airport, and Coastal Community Credit Union.

The user-friendly, info-graphic style of this report provides easy reference to a range of relevant information while also providing sources for anyone wishing to delve into greater detail.”
