Communities do not become digitally-enabled by chance, it happens by design. This year at the 13th Annual State of the Island Economic Summit, learn more about how Vancouver Island communities are using connectivity to step up their digital bench strength to build identity-rich, place-based, resilient economies.
Join a group of expert panelists as they discuss firsthand how connectivity is a regional game-changer when it comes to redefining British Columbia’s rural and coastal advantage!
