Business Walks - We Want to Hear From You!
In partnership with WorkBC, the Northern Development Initiative Trust, Mackenzie Chamber of Commerce, the College of New Caledonia, as well as Community Futures Fraser-Fort George, the District completes annual Business Walk exercises that help measure the health of our business community.
Teams of elected officials, District staff, and the business service representatives visit store-front town and industrial site businesses for short interviews with business operators to identify ways we can help business thrive here in Mackenzie. Online and phone surveys are also made available to reach further non-store front businesses in the community.
By taking the time to answer our questions, business owners provide valuable information that the District and our business support agencies will be able to use to develop tailored programs and services that will better assist our local businesses.
