Meeting Facilitation

West Coast Aquatic has over 20 years of experience in supporting processes that are principle based, build relationships, acknowledge multiple knowledge systems (Indigenous, local and scientific), value diversity, and seek consensus. From community-based discussion to summit-style gatherings involving representatives from multiple sectors and all levels of government and First Nations, we can assist with the planning and implementation of any type of meeting--from a brief session involving local and call-in attendees to a multi-day event.

West Coast Aquatic seeks to produce innovative solutions to coastal concerns, and strengthen the understanding and relationships between parties that share a common interest in the health and wealth of aquatic resources, businesses, and communities. West Coast Aquatic is comprised of: a collaborative governance board that brings together governments, key sectors and communities to develop consensus-based outcomes for marine resources on the West Coast of Vancouver Island; a management association that provides technical and administrative support to the activities of the governance board; and a charitable organization that administers stewardship activities.
