Helping you move on up. Or move on over. Since 1893.
With major urban centres becoming crowded and expensive, a labour market shift to remote and work-from-home employment, and a search for more balanced lifestyles in smaller communities, Nelson’s economy is poised for even more growth and diversification than its seen in the past decade.
The city has since its pioneer mining and logging days been defined by its entrepreneurial spirit. Nelson in fact already has more business licenses per-capita than most BC communities — 1,300, and counting.
The Chamber of Commerce, working alongside the Nelson and Area Economic Development Partnership, can provide all the information you need regarding property avails, development services and entrepreneurial opportunities, taxation, workforce, demographics and income flow and the region’s on-going investment in infrastructure, including high speed fibre optics.
