Impact Report 2022-2023

“I will never underestimate the art of listening to our community — it has helped us achieve a great deal with a small team in a short time.”

— Emilie de Rosenroll, Group CEO, South Island Prosperity

Seven years ago, South Island Prosperity Partnership began with just two employees working out of a shared space at Ogden Point. We had a passion for regional economic development and a bold vision from the start, supported by a powerful coalition of 29 public and private stakeholders — municipalities, First Nations, private sector, industry and business associations, and nonprofits.

Since those Ogden Point days, SIPP has expanded our membership to 70+ and our team has doubled in size in just this last year alone. We’ve also hired three executive directors, launched two new major arms —  the Indigenous Prosperity Centre (IPC) and the Centre for Ocean Applied Sustainable Technologies (COAST) — and earned international awards for our work. 

Back then, we couldn’t have imagined where we would be today because we didn’t have a specific end goal in mind — we followed a meaningful process to engage with people to set our future direction. SIPP’s growth has been organic, focusing on emerging needs and opportunities. This has led to a collaboratively-designed model that is achieving genuine impact.

And it’s being noticed outside our region. SIPP’s model was recently the subject of a one-year Community Economies pilot launched by the Shorefast Foundation with the Canadian Urban Institute, Community Foundations of Canada and the Coady Institute. The impact of SIPP’s collaborative model is also now the subject of a Case Study by the Centre of Social and Sustainable Innovation at UVic’s Gustavson School of Business.

SIPP is a credit to the whole region. The strengths we’ve developed over the years are the strengths of our members because they know that while it might seem faster to go it alone, we will all go that much farther when we do it together.

Throughout SIPP’s 7-year history, there have been many changes. But one thing that hasn’t changed is our core belief in the power of listening — and of incorporating what we hear — to every part of this incredible, diverse region so we know that what we do creates a lasting impact.

We are grateful to live and work on the territories of the Coast Salish and Nuu-Chah-Nulth peoples, who have thrived for millennia as the innovators, traders and stewards of these lands. We deeply value this connection.

These are the Lək̓ ʷəŋən speaking peoples (Xwsepsum [Esquimalt] and Songhees Nations), the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples (SȾÁUTW̱ – Tsawout, BOḰEĆEN – Pauquachin, W̱ JOȽEȽP – Tsartlip, W̱SIḴEM –Tseycum Nations, and MÁLEXEȽ – Malahat Nations), Scia’new Nation (Beecher Bay), T’Sou-ke Nation, and the Nuu-chah-nulth speaking peoples of the Pacheedaht Nation.

Pillar 1

Rising Economy Conference

That first Rising Economy conference has grown into a full-fledged thought leadership initiative that includes the Rising Economy conference (now entering its 4th year), Local Leadership Day, the Rising Economy podcast and monthly CHEK News spotlights featuring local people and organizations on the rise.

By bringing leaders and changemakers together to explore key issues, Rising Economy continues to positively and actively impact the regional agenda for a more resilient, innovative, sustainable and equitable (RISE) economy.

Pillar 2 – Invest in Innovation Ecosystems

It’s been a year of strong momentum for COAST, Pacific Canada’s hub for the sustainable blue economy, as we pursue the goal of building B.C. into a global leader in the rapidly-growing blue economy, creating new sustainable, export-driven jobs and enterprises.

Pillar 2

Centre for Ocean Applied Sustainable Technologies

This year, COAST engaged internationally in trade relations with Norway, Portugal, the U.S., and the U.K. to explore how Canadian SMEs can export or partner with innovators abroad. We also hosted an international networking event at IMPACT5, the 5th International Marine Protected Areas Congress. 

Nationally, COAST deepened our engagement with Canada’s Ocean Supercluster, hosting the Supercluster’s national tour in Victoria in 2022. We also continued our partnership with the Ocean Startup Project (OSP) as the national NGO’s Pacific Coast partner. Supported by two Ocean Ecosystem Navigator positions funded by OSP, we work with early-stage entrepreneurs in ocean and marine technologies to deliver on OSP projects in B.C. This partnership has led to a 235% increase (year over year) in engagement from B.C. companies in OSP’s national programs. This successful partnership has also contributed to the creation of 15 new startup companies and 20 new jobs in B.C. after just one year.

With the 2023 hiring of Jason Goldsworthy as Executive Director, COAST continues accelerating its growth with an ambitious Catalyst Phase Plan to develop B.C. as a world-class innovation hub for ocean and marine technologies. We also launched COAST Venture Acceleration Program with VIATEC and Innovate BC to prepare new West Coast ocean tech startups for success. 

“The COAST Mixer at IMPAC5 in Vancouver in January 2023 illustrated how far the Canadian oceantech community had come in the previous year…B.C. now has the second-largest marine startup community in the country, surpassing Newfoundland and Labrador. — 2022 Canadian Oceantech Data Report by Peter Moreira, Entrevestor

“B.C. innovators are building connections, developing technology and fuelling research that will help transition B.C. to a low-carbon economy, including in the ocean-based sector.”
– Josie Osborne, B.C. Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation, Spring 2023 funding announcement for COAST
Funding announced in 2023 from B.C.’s Innovative Clean Energy (ICE) Fund in collaboration with IPC projects
Increase in B.C. ocean and marine technology startups in 2022, representing 44 additional employees
Increase in B.C. applicants for the 2022 Ocean Startup Challenge over 2021
Youth engaged in solving real-time ocean problems through the Ocean Tech Competition led by COAST, UVic, OSP, IEEE and Coast Capital Innovation Centre

Pillar 3 – Invest in Inclusion and the Future Workforce

The year has been one of foundation building for the Indigenous Prosperity Centre (IPC), a SIPP branch launched in 2021 to support Indigenous-led economic development on Southern Vancouver Island and across B.C. IPC is committed to self-determined, multi-generational prosperity that honours community well-being and values.

Pillar 3

Indigenous Prosperity Centre

With the 2022 hiring of Executive Director Christina Clarke, IPC continues forming deeper relationships and partnerships to cultivate Indigenous-led prosperity. To emphasize storytelling as an engagement strategy, IPC hired an Indigenous Communications Specialist in 2022 and launched the Indigenous Prosperity Podcast.

IPC is exploring systemic barriers and ways to support Indigenous businesses and makers. IPC initiated the Accelerating Indigenous Procurement project to streamline federal government procurement with Indigenous suppliers to test, refine and launch a modernized approach. We also collaborated with community partners to develop and promote the Indigenous Business Directory for the Capital Region. This year, another vital aspect of IPC’s work is our launch of the Intellectual Property (IP) study exploring systemic barriers to protecting Indigenous traditional knowledge.

To demonstrate and celebrate Indigenous leadership in the blue economy, IPC hosted the inaugural First Nation Marine Stewardship Flotilla in partnership with 9 First Nations. This Flotilla highlights First Nations’ importance in monitoring, cleaning and protecting the Pacific Coast and its waters.

“The Indigenous Prosperity Centre has a vital role in understanding and supporting the needs of local Indigenous communities…The projects and activities undertaken by IPC will directly benefit local nations and potentially create additional positive impacts on neighbouring nations as relationships are built….”

Pillar 4 – Tell Our New Story

A regional economy that is resilient and innovative needs to address gaps and shifting demographics. Doing this means positioning Southern Vancouver Island as a favoured destination for companies, capital and talent to fulfill the need for a highly skilled workforce in the healthcare, construction and technology sectors.

Pillar 4

Victoria Rising

This is the impetus for Tell Our New Story, an initiative that emerged from a key recommendation in Reboot: Greater Victoria’s Economic Recovery Plan, published by SIPP in 2020. In this report, several Rising Economy Taskforce committees recognized the need for a regional promotion strategy for talent and business attraction to position Greater Victoria to meet post-pandemic challenges. Following an extensive process that included consultations with 12 sector groups, 6 focus groups, 10 member municipalities and 400 individuals representing a diversity of age groups, genders and cultural backgrounds, the new “Victoria Rising” platform will launch in late fall 2023. 

This multi-sector, multi-community regional brand box and promotional platform for talent and business attraction includes a website, shareable brand assets and marketing tools. This collaborative effort of SIPP, VIATEC, the DVBA and others will position Greater Victoria and its subregions to attract the people, businesses and entrepreneurs drawn to our regional vision and the sector opportunities that align with it.

“In Victoria, we were kindly hosted by the superb team at the South Island Prosperity Partnership. I have seen the work they do at close quarters, and it is first-class.”
— Tim Moonen, Co-Founder & Managing Director, The Business of Cities
