Real Estate Foundation lauds CAVI in open letter to Premier of BC



Call for action on a new Water Sustainability Act

In February 2013, the Real Estate Foundation of BC  sent an open letter to the Premier of British Columbia, the Honourable Christy Clark, and Minister of the Environment, the Honourable Dr. Terry Lake. The letter was a call for action.

“In fulfilling the Foundation’s mandate, we have the opportunity to work with hundreds of groups throughout the province—non-profit, government, private sector, First Nations and community stakeholders—all working inpartnership to support progressive, sustainable land use practices,” wrote Jack Wong, Chief Executive Officer of the Real Estate Foundation.

“For example, over several years, the Real Estate Foundation has funded the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC to support Convening for Action on Vancouver Island and throughout the province. This initiative has brought together local governments, developers, academics, non-governmental organizations and other practitioners, to advance leading practices and promote a collaborative “water-centric” approach to community planning. The program is aligned with the Province’s Water Sustainability Action Plan for BC, Living Water Smart Program and Green Communities initiative.”
