Bill - cameraThe Institute for Coastal Research at Vancouver Island University works towards further understanding of the cultural, economic, environmental and social dynamics of the B.C. coast through collaborative research, creative exploration, dialogue, engagement and education.  In doing so, we try to help guide human activities to bring the greatest good to coastal communities and ecosystems.
