dc.description.abstractTourism has often been cited as the next economy for small communities and regions on Vancouver Island to tilt towards in the wake of a declining forestry industry. With development of such an undertaking, there are numerous opportunities and unique challenges for communities to meet. Utilizing the Cowichan Lake region on Vancouver Island, this Major Project investigates how communities shift from rural resource-based economies to those based in tourism and services, the people involved and what needs to be done in order to develop such industries. The project has key takeaways tailored to the Cowichan Lake region, with themes discovered being applicable to many other Vancouver Island communities. The project focusses on how planners can help facilitate such development.en_US
