Thanks ICET!

Members of the Island Coastal Economic Trust held their regular board meeting in our conference room this week and we were pretty excited to see them and say thanks as ICET provided 1 $Million to the project. Very significant to us as this represents the very strong regional support for the Deep Bay Marine Field Station and VIU’s goal of supporting coastal communities.
