The Centre is partnering with Local Whistler to bring Buy Local Week to the Sea to Sky

BC Buy Local Week is an annual celebration of local business. Local businesses contribute to the uniqueness, authenticity, economic diversity and resilience of our communities. Shifting even 1% of your spending can contribute significantly to the local economy. Buy Local Week is being run in communities around BC including Vancouver and Tofino. The Centre's local economy action network (LEAN) initiative seeks to create a greater shared value-based local economy in the Sea to Sky Corridor. To chat about economic development contact Cheeying 604-935-8209.
