I've had it on the NE facing window this time around, and it has been a month, but I haven't found definitive new shoots developing yet. What should I do?
I believe the biggest contributing factor here is light, it needs more. These things regularly see high temps in the wild, so a north facing window is BC is nothing.
The leaves that grew last year are called phyllodia, they are a leaf grown in a time of stress so that the plant can still photosynthesize, but doesn't have to expend the energy to grow a pitcher. The lack of light was this stressor. These plants can live on a windowsill, I've done it, but it need an east facing window at a minimum. West facing would be equivalent to east facing, but south facing would be better.
Two caveats here.
When I say they'll live, I mean they'll survive and grow, but not thrive and explode. Don't expect show quality pitchers.
I normally suggest against south facing windows due to the glass can sometimes intensify the light and heat, cooking the plants. I don't think that will be much of an issue in BC.
For your plant now, where there is no info on growing media, pot, or water given in your post I would suggest a couple things.
You just repotted a month ago, was the rhizome still firm and beautiful with decent roots? Make sure the top third of the rhizome is exposed. Also, what was the media and pot?
Water. Keep this plant in about an inch of water. They like wet conditions, just not swimming all the time. Distilled, rain, or RO water is recommended, but check the TDS of your tap water. Most carnivorous plants need a TDS of less than 50 ppm, but Sarrs can take higher. Most agree that they can take 100-150 ppm, some say up to 250 ppm. My tap water is 100-110 ppm and mine do just fine with it.
My strongest suggestion, as long as the rhizome was good, get it outside. As long as your weather stays above freezing, leave it outside in an area that gets direct morning sunlight and bright indirect light after noon. Eventually you'll be able to move it to full sun, but have some patience.
There are other things you could try, shallow cuts on the rhizome among other things, along with the steps above, but I wouldn't go that far yet. It probably just needs more time and sun to finish waking up.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
