The Nanaimo Industrial Development Committee held its first meeting in 1975. Original members of the steering committee included: Alderman Medland, W.S. MacKay (City of Nanaimo, Director of Planning and Development), George Popplestone (Nanaimo and District Labour Council), John Buckingham (Malaspina University-College), Don Rawlins and Willis Ganderton (Chamber of Commerce), E.G. Stroyan (Forest Industry representative), John Dunham (Port Manager), Jack Richardson (Waterfront Property Owners Association), Ward Palmer (Canada Manpower), Dr. C.D. McAllister (Biological Station) and M. Irvine (International Longshoremen and Warehousemen's Union). The objectives of the Committee were to 1) advise the City's Planning Department on needs for industrially and commercially zoned land; 2) to act as a catalyst and receiving agent for inquiries concerning industrial and commercial development; 3) to act as liaison between developers, community groups and federal and provincial governments and 4) to assess economic, commercial and industrial needs in the community and to attempt to respond to those needs. The Committee received a portion of the funds appropriated to the Planning and Development Department.

Records were transferred to the City Hall Vault at an unknown date and transferred to the Nanaimo Community Archives in 2003.

Fonds consists of minutes, agendas, correspondence and membership lists of the Nanaimo Commercial and Industrial Development Advisory Committee.
