The Comox Valley Regional Economic Development Strategic Plan Update was prepared to guide economic development activities in the Comox Valley over the five-year period from 2013 to 2017.
It was prepared as part of the 5 Year Agreement between Comox Valley Economic Development Society and the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD), as the contracted agency responsible for economic development services in the CVRD. The strategy will be successfully implemented with the continued participation and joint efforts of the region’s municipalities (Courtenay, Comox and Cumberland) and Regional District, K’omoks First Nation, and many other partners in the public and private sectors.
High-level references to economic development in the Regional Growth Strategy, Sustainability Strategy and available municipal Official Community Plans are referenced in the Plan. As the economic “department” for the regional government, as well as the individual municipalities, CVEDS can use its expertise and track record to determine the specific programs and actions that are most likely to achieve these regional objectives, in the areas over which CVEDS provides services and support.
