You’re invited to help celebrate the launch of Fernie’s newest mental health support platform; When We Talk.

Rachel, the founder of When We Talk is launching with the mission to create an accessible and affordable form of mental health support that is not only based on research evidence but also based on real human experience. With hopes to bridge the gap in mental health services in Fernie and the Elk Valley so everyone can get the support they need.

A public hearing regarding bylaw amendments to permit new residential development on private property known as the Galloway Lands adjacent to Fernie Alpine Resort has been cancelled.

“We have received notification from the developer that following comments and concerns received from the public and RDEK Board, they are withdrawing the current application,” says RDEK Board Chair Rob Gay. “As a result, the public hearing scheduled for mid-June has been cancelled.”

Fernie draws people from around the world, and fortunately for this small mountain town many fall so in love that they return with their talents and expertise and begin unique businesses, adding to the already impressive array of entrepreneurs and the offerings available here.

When it comes to drinks of all sorts, you will find a suprising number of locally crafted options while in Fernie. Make sure to check out these while here, your tastebuds will thank you.
