We are very excited to be back up in Northwest BC to organize the Nation2Nation Community Forum but this time in Kitimat. Our N2N team is made up of 2 of us from City of Prince George, 1 from Prince Rupert and 1 from Terrace. This event (and all our Nation2Nation events) is about creating conversation towards economic development and self-reliance between Industry and Government from a First Nations perspective.

Day 2 is already sold out. Join us for Day 1. Get your tickets: http://www.nation2nation.ca/events

Can’t believe it has already been 6 years that we started to give to Kiva. Did you know there is a Kiva team in City of PG? This is a team of local PG-ers who have loaned out over $10,000 of micro loans to entrepreneurs. It is our way of helping to create community and opportunity around the globe. Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.

Eventually we would love to see little microloans for entrepreneurs locally in Prince George and the Northern Region. Kiva makes it so easy with $25 investments at a time. If you’re interested in making this happen, let us know to put you on the list.

Just found this great link on past webinars done on business and economic development by the Province of BC. Definitely worth bookmarking if you have an interest in community building projects as well as business and economic development:
