Registration open for UVic lecture on planning for demographic changes in CRD

A New Leaf: Turning to Our Region’s Future (February 21-22, 2013 at the University of Victoria, in collaboration with the CRD).

The demographic profile of the capital region is changing. As the population size and structure changes, demands for labour, housing, health care, transportation, education and many other aspects of our region will change over the years to come. By planning ahead, the region will be able to take advantage of opportunities and prepare for a prosperous future. Decision makers, planners, researchers and the general public will discuss the opportunities, challenges and options created by these anticipated changes and seek ways to work together effectively.

A New Leaf: Turning to Our Region’s Future provides an opportunity to consider the potential impact of demographic change in our region. This two-day event includes a public lecture (free admission) on February 21, 2013 and a discussion forum (registration required) on February 22, 2013.

Register now for the discussion forum:

  • Until February 15 – early bird registration ($35 + tax)
  • After February 15 – regular registration ($50 + tax)
