State of the Sectors Case Studies

From pandemic to historic highs in inflation, housing shortages and global economic disruption, the Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce has released the findings of a four-month study on the impact of these unprecedented challenges on the region’s business sector.

The State of the Sectors series is a partnership between The Chamber, The Nelson and Area Economic Development Partnership, Community Futures Central Kootenay and the Economic Trust of the Southern Interior (ETSI BC).

“These sector case studies drew on the front-line experience of dozens of the region’s business owners,” says Chamber Executive Director Tom Thomson. “We held round table sector consultations and one-on-one interviews with over 75 members of the local business community.”

More than 45 aims for action and lobbying were developed, all of which will be shared with local, regional provincial and federal levels of government, plus other agencies and business service providers.
