Sechelt mulling over partnership offer from Innovation Island

Sechelt Councillors are going to a wait a bit before deciding if they’re going to get on board with Innovation Island.

The Nanaimo-based technology industry group recently hosted events on the Sunshine Coast, and Sechelt Councillor Darnelda Siegers says she likes what she saw when they were working with local tech entrepreneurs.

Innovation Island is proposing a 10-thousand dollar service agreement to work with the District on fostering the tech sector.

Mayor Bruce Milne says he likes the idea but they need some more information before making any decisions.  One of them is how a partnership with Innovation Island will fit in with a region wide approach to economic development.

Council will take another look at the idea next month.
