It’s time to plan as if we’re living on an Island.

It’s both a critical and exciting time for Vancouver Island and the Pacific coast. Practical steps and a well-balanced approach will ensure that growth, conservation and development work hand in hand. So too will appreciation for the beauty and diversity we share here on the Island.

After five years of working with communities on initiatives important to mid-island sustainability and stewardship we are taking on larger regional and coastal goals, and adopting a new name – the Vancouver Island and Coast Conservation Society.

VICCS looks forward to working in partnership, and to finding solutions that will serve the Island and the coast for the betterment of us all.

And we welcome your suggestions and ideas…
