Comox Valley Social Planning Society forums

Comox Valley Social Planning Society wants input to update its 2009 Quality of Life Report.

To launch the process of gathering data and statistics, the Comox Valley Social Planning Society has been working with the North Island College nursing faculty and third-year nursing students.

They have planned two public forums to generate public, agency, organization, and community interest in the project.

The forums, supported by the NIC President’s Strategic Activity Fund, will be held March 22 at the Lower Native Sons Hall in Courtenay.

The afternoon forum will run from 3 to 5 p.m. and the evening forum from 6:30 to 8:30. Pre-registration is not necessary. Just come prepared to have a little fun.

The format for both sessions will begin with a meet and greet, then move onto a few short presentations.

Speakers confirmed to date include: Roger Albert, speaking on how we measure well-being, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and quality of life; and Tony Edwards talking about the Community Investment Fund. A third speaker is as yet unconfirmed.

Comments, questions, and suggestions for improving on the 2009 Quality of Life Report will be sought. Refreshments and door prizes will be provided.

For more information, or to obtain a copy of the 2009 Quality of Life Report, call 250-335-2003 or go to and click on the Quality of Life link.
