Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TECK.A and TECK.B, NYSE: TECK) (“Teck”) today announced it has broken ground on its zero-carbon office building in Sparwood, BC. The new 121,500-square foot facility will bring together approximately 580 Teck employees in the Elk Valley into one sustainable new space.

In direct response to input from community members, Wildsight Elk Valley’s social enterprise Local is excited to announce extended opening hours. After a recent survey which drew participation from over 90 local residents, they are pleased to adjust Local’s schedule with the aim to make fresh locally-produced food available to more members of the Elk Valley community this Harvest season.

Launched August 22nd, their new opening schedule is as follows:

Behold Beauty
1142 Matevic Rd Sparwood 

Behold Beauty started in 2017 as a part time venture while owner Michelle Stasiuk was finishing her bachelor of business administration in sustainable business practice. Once completed, Behold quickly moved into a multi-service home esthetic studio. After a short 11-month hiatus Michelle is back to what she loves; making others feel good about themselves by enhancing their natural beauty. 

The alluring aromas of fresh bread, doughnuts and artisanal pastries have been wafting through the town of Invermere since Quality Bakery opened in 1956. Over the decades, the bakery has changed hands a couple of times, and been redubbed the Invermere Bakery. Most recently, in 2021 it became the property of its now-current owner, Theo Walta—a dream fulfilled with help from the Trust.

With the help of The Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies (CFKR) and the Columbia Basin Trust, the Fernie Mountain Market will be able to run the Power of Produce (PoP) Club this year! After a few years of hiatus, it is with great pleasure that Wildsight Elk Valley is working with the Fernie Mountain Market to make this program a reality. 

Coal Town Furnace and AC 403-563-9481
Forest fire season is coming, and Fernie has already seen plenty of smoke. Why not make your summer a little more comfortable and a little less smoky with a central air conditioning system from Coal Town Furnace and AC? Central AC keeps your home cool without having to pull in so much outside air keeping your home at a comfortable temperature and the air relatively smoke free! 

Cranbrook Autocross

Street Cats Car Club will be hosting eight autocross events this summer at the Western Financial Place, beginning on Sunday, May 14. 

Autocross is a timed, competitive motorsport in which drivers navigate one at a time through a defined course outlined by pylons to make a miniature racing circuit. It emphasizes safe competition and is ideal for beginners and anyone else looking to dip their toes into the world of motorsport. 

Just like the best adventures, they may take time to plan but are always worth the wait. Fernie Brewing Co.’s latest adventure is no different. After lengthy market exploration, recipe testing, and brand development, Fernie Brewing Co. is excited to announce the arrival of their new non-alcoholic brand hitting shelves next month. Raise a glass to your newest adventure-bud, LOGOTM by FBC®.

Fernie Heritage Trust Society

The Fernie Heritage Trust Society (FHTS) is a new non-profit formed to save the historic Knox United Church building as a community resource. FHTS is transforming the facility into a performing arts and multi-purpose community space.
