Construction is complete on the City of Fernie’s new Operations Facility, and an event will be held on November 16 to officially open the new facility.

North Coal Limited is committed to the well-being of the Elk Valley and is pleased to contribute to the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies (CFKR) in Elkford, Sparwood, and Fernie with a $5000 donation to each local Community Fund.

Many families in the Columbia Basin rely upon child care. To help meet this need for quality spaces, 67 child care providers in 24 communities will be creating up to 198 new spaces and improving 1,256 spaces. These projects are being undertaken with nearly $1.4 million from Columbia Basin Trust’s Child Care Capital Grants.

The RDEK Board Highlights for October include a New Official Community Plan for Lake Windermere, the Mission Road and Hwy 95A Intersection Project, Two New Parks to Become Part of Regional Parks Plan and more.

We all have a spirit animal. For Fernie Mountain Mamas it is often the majestic and graceful Gran-Mama. Our saviour. Our calm amidst the storm. Our inspiration.
