Welcome to our newest members:    Homathko River Inn, Ron Paull Communications, and Tall Timbers Resort Ltd.

We are still excited over being presented with the BC Chamber of the Year Award at the conference at the end of May.

The board and staff have been focused on what is happening in our community and have been advocating steadily.

In particular their time has been taken on the issues around the BC Ferry route 40 and the Prosperity Mine project.

There is an opportunity for you all to come down and meet the summer staff at the Visitor Centre as we are open every day from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

There is so much to see and do in our area and we would love to give you some ideas of places to go.

We also have loads of information for the rest of the province.

We encourage you all to use our services; buy a fishing licence, reserve a campground, ask where the best place to swim would be or where to buy local products.

Bring in your visitors, they will be dazzled!

Guest speakers for our general meeting held Thursday June 19 were Minister of Community Sports and Cultural Development Coralee Oakes and Fred Thomas, Williams Lake Stampede president.

We, through the BC Chamber, are still able to provide exclusive wholesale pricing to Chamber members at rates below the current Fortis Utility Rate.

Current offering is: one year price: $2.95/GJ. Call us for more information at 250-392-5025 or email

With graduation ceremonies done for most parents the Grade 12 students have been firming up their next steps.

We are very fortunate to have TRU in our community.

There are so many advantages like the lower cost of living here, having the support of family and friends nearby, a new campus with friendly accessibility and smaller class sizes. It is definitely one of the better choices especially for the first year.

On July 1, 2014, CASL: Canada’s Anti Spam Legislation, comes into effect.
