As B.C. marks Small Business Week (Oct. 20 – 24), the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce is celebrating the vital role small businesses play in the Boundary Country.

“Small businesses make up a major part of the Boundary’s business community and play a critical role in driving our local economy and creating jobs,” said James Wilson, Executive Director of the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce. “Small Business Week is a great opportunity for our community to celebrate these hard-working businesses that bring great ideas and entrepreneurial spirit to our region.”

As a member of the BC Chamber of Commerce, the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce is part of active advocacy to support small businesses, including:

The creation of and implementation of B.C.’s Small Business Accord;

The removal of thousands of B.C. businesses from recycling costs and red tape under Multi Material BC’s packaging and printed paper program; and

Continued advocacy for lower municipal business taxes.

The Chamber encourages Boundary residents to demonstrate their support for small businesses this week by making an extra effort to shop local. 

“Celebrate local small businesses this week by purchasing goods from local shops, eating out at a local restaurant or café, or paying for a local service such as a haircut,” said Wilson.
