With 13 municipalities on Southern Vancouver Island, inter-governmental collaboration is often seen as — well — complicated. But the desire to collaborate across municipal boundaries was alive and well at Local Leadership Day 2023, hosted by SIPP.

The event drew over 90 municipal leaders and key stakeholders together to explore solutions to local constraints to economic vibrancy. Join Rising Economy podcast host Kerry Slavens and guests Steve Duck, Sidney Municipal Councillor and Dallas Gislason, Executive Director, Community Economies, SIPP, to discuss how collaboration benefits the entire region. The Rising Economy podcast is available on CHEK+ and all audio platforms.
