The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the finalists for this year’s Fernie Business Excellence Awards. There were close to 100 business and organization nominations cast for the awards this year which is an amazing testament to how much local businesses are valued by the community.  

The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the appointment of the new Executive Director, Wendy McDougall.

Wendy and her family moved to Fernie in August 2019. After visiting the town on weekends and holidays for over a decade, they decided to make the move to Fernie permanent and have never looked back. Over the last 3 years they have become fully entrenched in the community, taking in all this mountain town has to offer.

The Arts Station is excited to invite you to “Light up the Arts” starting on November 25 at 6pm. Wander downtown to discover magical lighted installations by local artists in a fun and interactive artwalk. Light up the Arts will launch at an annual collaborative community event, the Holiday Kick-off, in partnership with the Fernie Chamber of Commerce and the City of Fernie. 

I am writing my column from Prince George where Chambers of Commerce from across British Columbia are gathered in-person for the first time in three years for the BC Chamber AGM and Conference. It has been an awesome week – packed with amazing presentations from government officials, business analysts, and industry leaders. And of course, being in the mix and networking with people who do my role around the province is worth the price of admission alone. There has been a lot of valuable information that I can’t wait to bring back to Fernie and put in action in our local Chamber. 

The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is announcing the line-up of speakers for the Housing Information Session being hosted as part of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in-person event on Thursday April 21st. Celebrating 120 years since incorporation, the Fernie Chamber is excited to return to an in-person format at the Cast Iron Grill (Fernie Golf Club) after two years of virtual AGMs.

As we all ring in the new year, it’s the natural time to reflect on the year that was and the year ahead. For small business owners and managers, it’s usually a time of taking stock and planning for the new year with strategy, budgets, and all that fun stuff. It’s also a time we tend to set resolutions or goals for the year – both for our businesses, and ourselves.
