Nanaimo Mayor's Leaders' Table
Establishing the Mayor’s Leaders’ Table (the “Table”) is a key recommendation of the 2020 Mayor’s Task Force on Recovery and Resilience. The specific recommendation is to: Establish a Mayor’s Nanaimo Leaders’ Table to:
i. Be informed by findings and recommendations from the various task forces and committees and other entities plans to create an aligned approach and collaborate on a multi-levels of government “ask for capital infrastructure” for Nanaimo.
ii. Establish a working group consisting of representatives from SD68, VIU, venture and technology incubators, youth services, cultural organizations and major employers to develop a plan to:
a. address youth (18-34 years) attraction and retention;
b. provide input on major issues and opportunities facing the City; and,
c. build collaboration among key community entities.
Consistent with the 2020 Mayor’s Task Force on Recovery and Resilience Recommendations, establish a Mayor’s Leaders’ Table to advise, inform and collaborate across the community to further Nanaimo’s opportunities and address challenges. This broad community engagement at the Table, leveraging community-wide resources under the leadership of the City, constructs a forum to align the community strategically for multi-level government capital infrastructure asks, establish a youth attraction and retention strategy, build collaboration across entities, garner timely input, and, create an opportunity for broader implementation of the Doughnut Economics philosophy.
The specific focus areas have been identified according to the following documents:
