Elk Valley Investment Profile launched

The Elk Valley Economic Initiative is proud to announce the launch of the Elk Valley’s first investment profile – “Do It Different: Adventure & Industry in BC’s Ell Valley”. Working in collaboration with Capasiti Consulting, this is the first comprehensive document of its kind for our region. This investment profile showcases the communities and major industries in the Elk Valley, and is loaded with critical data for potential investors interested in our region – including population, labour, wages, infrastructure and climate data. It is envisaged that this vital tool will help attract investment and new businesses to the beautiful Elk Valley in southeastern British Columbia.
