Think Local

Creating a Positive Business Environment

The Campbell River Chamber actively promotes a positive business climate that facilitates and nurtures a prosperous community and strong local economy. Our community is entering into a time of exciting change, growth and opportunity. To capitalize on these, we are engaging and collaborating with our members, major stakeholders from the business community, the City, community organizations and educators to support the retention and growth of our local successful businesses and reflect the genuine personality of our community, businesses and community and business leaders. We have now launched Think Local, an initiative that will build on this collaboration and grassroots movement to enhance a positive business climate and a successful city for all our citizens.

The focus of the Campbell River Chamber's Think Local campaign is to strengthen the local economy through building and supporting a positive business climate. This will be achieved by increased awareness within Campbell River's local communities about the economic, social and business benefits in promoting and retaining our local businesses and profiling what makes Campbell River a great place to do business.

Through Think Local, the Chamber will also be profiling local business leaders, young professionals and businesses and individuals who are making a positive difference and creating competitive advantage and 'leadership' in our community. We are encouraging Campbell River citizens to Think Local and be aware of what Campbell River businesses have to offer and to help us build awareness about businesses that create great customer service, new products and services available in Campbell River and businesses and organizations that are enhancing our positive business climate.
