Driver Sectors

Our Economic Development Workplan 2015 identifies four Driver Sectors that support the region’s long-term economic prosperity: Wood, Food, Quality of Life (Tourism), and Digital/New Economy.

As well as these sectors, we also have a dedicated Project Manager focusing on the Education to Employment area.

We continue to identify opportunities and implement initiatives within each of these sectors. Success here will lead to growth for the entire region.
