Your board - how it’s structured – determines how you govern. We’ll address how you get the right balance of ‘voices’ and skills around the table, and how to configure and map terms of office for effective succession planning and revitalization. And, if you have a senior manager, what the responsibilities are under the Act and ‘good governance’.

Ghostly Walks are 90 minute walking tours with great storytellers that guide you through the streets and alleys of Victoria, a ghost-hunter’s paradise.

Ghostly Walks have been developed by John Adams, one of Victoria’s foremost historians and storytellers. John has been leading tours of Victoria since 1970. He has appeared on a number of TV series including Ghosts & Ghoulies and  OLN’s Creepy Canada. The tours are conducted by John and his team of expert guides.

Ghostly Walks are guaranteed to be spell-binding, entertaining, memorable, and most of all … spine-tingling!

The Peace River Break—it is where the Boreal Plains meet the Northern Boreal Mountains; where the Rocky Mountain’s Hart Range intersects with the cool waters of the Peace River. It’s a place where grizzly bears roam and woodland caribou graze; where sweeping vistas give way to wetlands, aspen forests and rolling grass lands. And it is home to some of the most fertile farm lands in northern B.C. It is an oasis for wildlife, hikers, anglers, and agriculturalists.
