Economic Impact & Opportunity Assessment of the 2010 Olympic Games

Date: 2010

EcoPlan led a strategic planning process to help the St’át’imc First Nation identify sustainable, 2010 Olympic-related economic opportunities that would carry on beyond the horizon of the Games. The planning process utilized a structured decision-making procedure involving an Advisory Committee that represented all St’át’imc communities, agencies and Tribal Councils. The ground-up, community-led process integrated technical information and informed value judgments. The project also identified potential 2010-related impacts in the areas of security and public safety, transportation, real estate and housing, and tourism.
