People, Planet and Prosperity - a conversation with Bill and Erin from Cascadia Seaweed
Sidney-based Cascadia Seaweed is the largest cultivator of seaweed in North America. Its mission is to improve human health, support coastal communities and heal the earth by cultivating seaweed at scale in the ocean.
Join us on Tuesday, March 1, 2022, for Voices of Saanich and the Islands to learn more about this growing opportunity from Cascadia Chairman Bill Collins and Erin Bremner-Mitchell, Manager of Communications and Engagement.
Bill was trained as a geologist and received a Master of Science degree from Memorial University. After moving to the Victoria area in 1994, he brought a locally invented sonar system to more than twenty navies and government institutions. Bill has a passion for creating and executing sound business plans and a strong belief in opportunities for business growth on Vancouver Island.
Erin is a graduate of the business administration program at Camosun College with a specialty in marketing, and has served on the Town of Sidney Council. She is passionate about demonstrating the triple bottom line theories of business, which prioritize people, the planet and profit equally. Erin has worked as director of communications for multiple political campaigns and as an independent contractor has supported the development of many local businesses.

Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
