About ITO

Our Mission

To collaborate with others to connect the following ideas

  • An ecosystem approach to environmental protection and planning;
  • Less dependency on Carbon based energy sources;
  • Sustainable urban design, planning and energy use;
  • Transportation options that promote community, healthy lifestyles and real Choice;
  • Local economic development models that encourage local food production;

IslandTransformations.Org Speaks Out re Transportation Options and Governance

On November 20th, 2012,  Citizen's Forum, Jack Etkin, interviewed ITO President, Irwin Henderson, and associate, Lloyd Skaalen on two of the most critical issues for Vancouver Island which limit our capability to achieve Transportation Oriented Development (TOD) and would improve livability and sustainability for all.

Board Meetings

Our Annual General Meeting, 21 May 2013, was lightly attended by non members, but current and prospective members were presented with a couple of exciting public engagements this summer and fall that should promote our objectives; we will keep you posted.

Board meetings are quarterly.
