For the first time in a number of years, the Board of the Port Edward Historical Society and the management and staff at the North Pacific Cannery Historical Site have a new blueprint for the work ahead for one of the top tourism draws in the region.
The completion of a new Strategic Plan was noted by District of Port Edward Mayor Knut Bjorndal as part of his March update for residents, the Mayor having attended a recent Strategic Planning workshop related to the popular North Coast attraction.
Mr Bjorndal did not divulge much in the way of information for residents from his update, with only a few tidbits of information to share.
North Pacific Cannery had a good year and the Board prepared a new Strategic Plan, the first in a long while. There are plans for more community events, repair and maintenance of the facility and an effort to secure stable funding for the future.
The Port Edward Mayor concluded his observations with a note that he anticipates that 2023 will be another banner year for the site.
So far the Board of Directors at the Port Edward Historical Society has not released any background to their Strategic Plan or what is in the works for the 2023 tourism season just ahead.
While we're getting closer to the arrival of what could be a large volume of visitors for 2023, the employment page at the Historical site's online portal has yet to issue a call for workers for the season ahead.
