Events are scheduled throughout the entire week for entrepreneurs and business owners including Northern WIL Hub with Coast Mountain College and College of New Caledonia, The energy transformation to lower carbon and Insights for Black Entrepreneurs.

Manager for the Smithers Chamber Sheena Miller said now more than ever economic recovery is so important.

“Chambers have never been so important and economic development positions have never been so important and so with a week like this we can offer a lot of training opportunities, different lunch and learns. Our friends at the Terrace Chamber of Commerce organized three different lunch and learns for us,” she said.

Miller added that the Smithers Chamber is working collectively with all of the other Chamber of Commerce on the Live Love Local Northwest Campaign.

“We’re trying to encourage a cultural shift and we’re trying to get people to commit to making a pledge in keeping this region strong and now through COVID it is so important to understand where we spend our money and how we are all affected by the supply chain issues,” Miller said.
