Cortes Day from Romina Jones on Vimeo.

Get in the mood for sun and summer with a flashback to 2017’s Cortes Day. Seeing my community celebrate always brings a big smile to my face. A special shout out is deserved to all the great volunteers who make events like this happen on our island. Thanks for the tunes to Cortes own Back Eddy and the Procrastinators.

LEAP Conversation Cafe Cortes

LEAP Conversation Cafe from Romina Jones on Vimeo.

LEAP (Local Economic Action Plan) is an initiative of the Cortes Island Business and Tourism Association (CIBATA) that fosters home-grown economic development through community engagement and planning.

The LEAP conversation cafe allowed community members an opportunity to think about economic issues on the island and through tackling diverse questions together help shape the LEAP process and make it relevant and valuable to the Cortes community.
LEAP acknowledges the support of Island Coastal Economic Trust and the Strathcona Regional District.
