Buying Local a focus for Northern Savings program
The focus for the project is to purchase locally produced items for the purpose of giving away as corporate gifts.
Northern Savings makes use of the goods received as part of their ongoing community initiatives with local charitable groups, as well as through giveaways at trade shows, conferences and other community events.
They also make use of the local purchases internally for awards to members and staff members through the year.
In addition to the purchase of goods that participants will gain, the popular program offers the chance for exposure for participants who can supply their locally made goods for use by Northern Savings, products that are to be considered must have a value of 5 to 50 dollars, be non perishable and easily transportable.
Those selected for the program should be able to produce multiple quantities of their goods and they must be produced or created locally.
Preference for the program will be given to Northern Savings' members. To participate, you must be a resident of Haida Gwaii, the North Coast or the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine
