Vincent Deslauriers

Executive Director, BC ÉCONOMUSÉE Network Society

 

Before joining the BC ÉCONOMUSÉE Network in 2014, Quebec City native Vincent Deslauriers worked in various fields, including regional development, education, and the social and solidarity economy. Now settled in Nelson, B.C., he has been working to develop the Network’s presence in the Kootenay Region. Through meetings, events and workshops organized for local artisans and partners, he has succeeded in strengthening the Network, contributing to the opening in 2019 of the Nelson-based Hat Making ÉCONOMUSÉE, Lillie & Cohoe.

Following the creation of the BC ÉCONOMUSÉE Network Society and the significant financial support granted by Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) for the development of new tourist projects in the Kootenays, Vincent was chosen as the new Executive Director of the British Columbia Network.

In the next few years, the development of new ÉCONOMUSÉES in the eastern part of the province will help reinforce the Network. Although the Network is still young and facing a lot of challenges, it has already demonstrated its relevance by highlighting the excellence of artisans’ work in British Columbia.”
