The Economic Development Division of the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour invites you to participate in our next webinar:
For every $100 spent at a local business, $46 recirculates in the local economy – which means each local purchase has 2.6 times the economic benefit.
In this webinar, hear from two organizations working with communities to encourage buying local, in addition to businesses, elected officials and municipal staff. Together, they’ll share the importance of buying local, some ways to promote buying local in your community, and tips and tricks from their success stories.
Shifting just 1% of purchases to B.C. owned businesses can generate 3,100 jobs and $94 million in wages in the B.C. Economy. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn how you can boost your community’s economy by highlighting existing businesses.
