One-stop Shop for Business Info
The City is starting the new service to share news, updates and opportunities directly with local businesses.
The articles will reflect the various City services used by businesses – licensing, bylaws, development services and others – along with news from external agencies and programs such as the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, Small Business BC, tourism organizations and other levels of government.
Articles will be relevant and concise, with links for those who want to learn more. For local businesses, the E-News will be a simple and convenient way to find out what’s new and to stay up-to-date on changes that affect them.
In addition to the quarterly emails, the City may occasionally issue special editions for time-sensitive information and opportunities. Subscribers may opt out at any time.
