On Tuesday June 4th from 9:00am to 10:30 am The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is hosting a community information session called Staffing for Businesses at the Fernie Curling Club.

Staffing for businesses is a challenge in the Fernie area due to the seasonal nature of the tourism economy, lack of certain skilled workers, and a small labor market with growing demand. All parties interested are welcome to attend.
