Victoria 3.0 - Pivoting to a Higher Economy

Youth Economic Roundtable
City Hall Antechamber

This fall, we are creating Victoria’s second economic action plan. We are seeking input from people who do business in our community to help develop a plan which will be presented to City Council in January 2020 and implemented over the next five to 20 years.

This roundtable is for youth! According to a recent report, “Humans Wanted: How Canadian Youth Can Thrive in an Age of Disruption” there will be 2.5 million more jobs created in Canada over the next five years; a technology revolution always results in more jobs not less. Youth are well-positioned to lead in this new economy. We are holding this roundtable to make sure that the City does what it can to help prepare youth for the economy of the future. All roundtables will be held at City Hall and facilitated by Mayor Helps. Learn More.
