The NISP® model is delivered regionally; uses facilitation to engage businesses and identify symbiosis opportunities; requires regionally-based practitioners dedicated to helping businesses implement symbiosis. There is no cost for businesses to participate in workshops or access NISP® practitioners. NISP® Canada was piloted in the Metro Vancouver and Greater Edmonton regions for 20 months (2017-2019) pilot, including 6 facilitated workshops. The pilot was a program of Light House and was funded by Western Economic Diversification, Metro Vancouver, City of Edmonton, City of Surrey, City of New Westminster, Innovate BC, BC Energy & Mines, BC Ministry of Agriculture, and BC Citizen Services and Community Development (now BC Municipal Affairs).
