AVICC members passed resolution R18 at the 2016 Convention requesting that AVICC conduct a financial and governance review of the Island Corridor Foundation. AVICC retained Kelly Daniels from aKd Resources to prepare the report.
The report was presented to the regional district representatives on the Island Corridor Foundation and sent to the ICF. The report and appendix are available below:
R18 Island Corridor Foundation City of Langford, Capital RD
Whereas the Island Corridor Foundation (ICF) was established in 2003 to oversee the management and operations of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo (E&N) rail line which has a direct impact on many municipalities on Vancouver Island but these same municipalities have no direct representation on the ICF board;
And whereas although the rail service has not been operating for the past several years, and the services provided to municipalities along the corridor by the management of ICF have not met the standard expected, the costs to local governments to support the ICF continue to be significant:
Therefore be it resolved that AVICC work with impacted local governments and the ICF board to conduct a financial and governance review of the Island Corridor Foundation.
