The Vancouver Island Technology Park would like to welcome another new member of our team, Gina Bugslag!

Gina is our new VITP Collaboration Centre Coordinator and you will find her smiling at the Welcome Desk when you arrive at VITP. Gina is responsible for both guest services and security within the VITP Collaboration during the daytime hours Monday to Friday. Her main goal is to raise our level of hospitality, and to ensure that everyone’s experience at VITP is exceptional. She will do this by offering services ranging from escorting your 3 year old grandson into the building, to providing restaurant suggestions, to assisting you with your meeting or conference set-up, or even offering free life advice!

Gina was previously employed at Vancouver Island University as their Event Coordinator, and has extensive experience in executing a variety of events. We are excited to have her lend her expertise with our Conference Centre, and to assist with the re-branding of the VITP Business Centre.

Gina is a home grown Island girl who was born and raised in Victoria, BC. She obtained a Bachelor of Tourism Management Degree (Recreation/ Marketing) from Thompson Rivers University in 2010. When she’s not at work, you will find her hiking with her dog, playing on her sailboat, or enjoying the snow at the ski hill.

Gina is in the process of obtaining a Basic Security Training (BST) License and holds her Bronze Medallion First Aid Certificate.  Securiguard will continue to work evenings, nights, weekends and holidays, and are excited to work in cohesion with Gina to effectively keep our facility as secure as possible.

Welcome Gina!

For all security related matters please continue to contact 250-483-3215, 250-889-4654 or 24/7. For all matters outside of security you can email Gina directly at
