SNCIRE Status Update

northwest bc river


Over the past year, SNCIRE has continued to promote innovation and diversification for Northwest BC. On the public front, our focus in 2014 was the Northwest Innovation Challenge, which was very well received.

The rest of our work in 2014 has been promoting regional cooperation and coordination around natural resource-based issues and initiatives. This has included discussions and meetings with municipal and regional district staff and elected officials, support and cooperation with non-governmental organizations, and support and providing information to private proponents on a demand basis.


These behind-the-scenes activities are in keeping with our current funding levels, and continuation of this approach is our expected direction for 2015, with one exception. Based on the extremely positive results and outcomes from the 2014 Northwest Innovation Challenge, we are planning this event again for 2015.


SNCIRE is also poised to ramp up operations in response to funding for a regional 'innovation and inspiration' centre, and for regional coordination of innovation and natural resource initiatives.
