Businesses consulted about their future
Representatives from Community Futures Boundary will be knocking on doors of Boundary businesses during the next few weeks to take the pulse of the current business climate in the Boundary Country.
Business owners will be asked questions that range from sustainability and succession plans, to gaps in the local market for supplies and services, and critical issues facing employees. The project, business expansion and retention (BRE) study, will give insight into how best to support the local businesses.
General manager of Community Futures Boundary, Wendy McCulloch, notes, “The completion of the study will enhance information available to decision makers about the needs and concerns of the Boundary Business community, and make available to the region best practises and tools
in business retention and expansion.”
Business retention and expansion has been identified as a priority in the Boundary region, explains McCulloch, and through consultations with key economic development stakeholders and local businesses the findings will ultimately strengthen the competitiveness of Boundary communities.
The BRE initiative is already progressing and in the early stages. If you would like to have your business included in the survey, please contact Sarah Winton at 250-442-2722 to arrange an appointment.
