Small Town Love movement starting to gain momentum in Prince Rupert

A program to be funded by the Northern Development Initiative Trust is starting to take shape on the North Coast, with the Small Town Love initiative set to put the focus on economic growth and job creation throughout the region.

An introduction to the program is planned for later in the month on July 22nd and July 23rd at the BC Room of the Crest Hotel, the two hour workshops will outline how the program to be called Love Prince Rupert works and what it can do for local residents and business owners.

The July 22nd session takes place from 5:30 to 7:30 PM, while the July 23rd gathering is from 7:30 to 9:30 AM.

To attend the July sessions or gain more information about the program contact Paul Venditelli at or at 250-627-5138

The main approach of the program is to build on the independent and entrepreneurial spirit of the North Coast and provide assistance to local residents to help them secure more success. An initial fee of 100 dollars will gain your business or service access to an online profile page, along with the chance to make use of a number of  resources to help build a customer base.

An overview of what Love Prince Rupert might provide for you can be examined here.
