Population Forum 2010

June 2, 2010

Thank you to all of you who were able to make it out to the Population Forum.

And thank you to Art Skipsey for sharing with us his knowledge and experience and views to the future. Art's point about declining volunteerism and the need for more local involvement points to an issue we are all concerned about and must find ways to address. Perhaps the first step is to ask "Is there anything I can do to help?" Read More.

Last evening's meeting was an opportunity for people to learn how official population statistics are put together. We also looked at some of the very significant changes to the population which are occurring locally, regionally, provincially, nationally and globally. We also looked at what the age distribution might look like in the short and medium term projections for the Parksville Census Agglomeration and Central East Vancouver Island.

For those of you who would like to take a look at the population projection to 2016 click here.
