Vancouver Island Sustainable Technology Association (VISTA) is a non-political, registered non-profit society in British Columbia, Canada helping to put a spotlight on Vancouver Island based technology students / academic leaders, investors, researchers, innovators, industry and economic development teams focussed on accelerating sustainable technology research, funding, products and initiatives.
The primary goal of VISTA is (but not limited to) the management - via 4 island based offices, the coordination and operation of the annual Vancouver Island Sustainable Technology Expo which rotates each year between Nanaimo, Greater Victoria and Campbell River.
VISTA Expo : By the Island - On the Island - For the Island, Region and Global Marketplace.
Vancouver Island (pop. approaching 1 million) in British Columbia, Canada is the largest island in the Pacific east of New Zealand and located about 80 km off the coast from the city of Vancouver, about 100 miles north west of Seattle in the United States.
Home to the Capital of British Columbia, Vancouver Island’s vibrant technology sector is served by 3 universities and 2 multi-campus community colleges - comprising more than 50,000 students. For many years the island has focused on sustainability and the mix of university level research, government and private investment, commercialized innovation and deployed projects - including those by most of the 53 First Nations on Vancouver Island - is testimony to this.
Acknowledged more and more as engaging to help lead both west coast and national decision making Vancouver Island is now planning its 5th annual full day Vancouver Island Sustainable Technology Expo.
VISTA Expo aims to present some of the best sustainable technology talent, through panel discussions, poster-boards, booth exhibitors and stakeholders with island and regional experts in attendance.
