Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission Launches Innovative Data Portal

by | Jan 14, 2021 | News | 0 comments

In light of current COVID-19 restrictions and physical distancing, it has never been more important that we enhance the COEDC digital profile. We’re very excited to launch this pilot program for the next 12 months and will continue to add features and datasets as we go. We are actually the first customer for this platform so we anticipate adjustments and improvements that will continue to support the Region’s economic recovery and business intelligence needs.

Ruby Industries has partnered with Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission (COEDC) on release of  Regional Community Data Portal powered by Cityviz.  The user-friendly data portal makes information, research and analysis instantly accessible to community stakeholders and businesses seeking data to make informed decisions.

The COEDC has launched online data tools on their website to put the Region firmly on the map for business relocation, investment and expansion.  Using Cityiz, decision-makers can search an online database of community information while simultaneously analyzing demographic, labour force, housing development, business and talent data at the district or city, and regional levels. The interactive tools are mobile-friendly and put key data at the fingertips of website visitors. Users have the ability to visualize data with interactive tools, charts, graphs, infographics, and reports that can be dynamically sorted and downloaded.

By giving users direct access to thousands of data points and the most accurate, up-to-date information on the Region will help build a nuanced picture of the breadth of opportunity and value of relocating and growing in the Central Okanagan. 

We are very excited about the possibilities of modern technologies together with the wealth of data available to create solutions for the good of our communities. We are very grateful to work with COEDC and hope to help decision makers further develop our district. Listening to the challenges municipalities face and adapting our solutions to their specific needs is our priority and we are looking forward to helping many more communities throughout Canada.” – Izabela Bogdanovic, Ruby Industries Inc.
