The Comox Valley Regional District is looking for residents to join its Airshed Roundtable Project.

It’s hoping to add six people to participate in the Airshed Roundtable alongside a variety of other groups and organizations.

The goal of the initiative is to develop and implement a Regional Airshed Protection Strategy to guide actions moving forward for the district. 

The district says the implementation of a Regional Airshed Protection Strategy will be a long term endeavour and with the help of the members of the Roundtable, the hope is to combat PM2.5 levels in the valley.

The primary responsibilities for individuals or organizations that sit on the Roundtable will be:

  • To help establish and identify shared priorities;
  • Help focus priorities to establish short, medium- and long-term actions;
  • Provide direction and lend expertise;
  • Assist with knowledge transfer;
  • Participate in strategic planning; and
  • Provide ongoing project support

The CVRD says ideally, it wants to add three individuals from the electoral areas and three individuals from the municipal areas who represent a diversity of backgrounds. 

If you are interested in applying, you can send your completed application electronically by July 29th to Brianne Labute, Planning and Policy Analyst via email
