LEAP Conversation Cafe Cortes

LEAP (Local Economic Action Plan) is an initiative of the Cortes Island Business and Tourism Association (CIBATA) with support of Island Coastal Economic Trust and the Strathcona Regional District. It’s aim is to foster 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, they were able to help shape the LEAP process and make it relevant and valuable to the Cortes community.
