Convening for Action on Vancouver Island (CAVI)

The Village is a member of the Comox Valley Waterwise regional team working on watershed protection in the Comox Valley through the CAVI pilot program. CAVI stands for Convening for Action on Vancouver Island that operates under the umbrella of the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia.

CAVI represents a growing network that includes the BC Water and Wastewater Association, the Real Estate Foundation of BC, the BC Ministries of Environment and Community Development, the Green Infrastructure Partnership.

CAVI emphasized water-centric planning and a design-with-nature approach to water sustainability on Vancouver Island. The group provides leadership on water sustainability, education and integration across groups and sectors.

Effective 2017 this group is being phased out, and the water balance model and the water wise website will continue under the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) liquid waste management planning function.
