Thriving Communities!

This initiative won an award in 2015 from the BCEDA for Best Marketing Initiative (Population under 20,000). When it comes to attracting new residents and investors, local residents can become the best ambassadors for promoting their community.  The regional economic development office launched a marketing campaign to teach residents about local economic drivers and good news stories.  This foundation of knowledge and confidence has encouraged new residents and investors to consider the region as the choice for lifestyle and investment.
