CAVI is the acronym for Convening for Action on Vancouver Island. CAVI is a regional pilot program that is being implemented under the umbrella of the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia. By 2010, the CAVI vision is that Vancouver Island will be well on its way to achieving water sustainability. CAVI was formally launched in September 2006 by means of a consultation workshop held as an adjunct to the Water in the City Conference.
