Open for Business
In recent years, the business landscape in Campbell River has changed, as people increasingly take the path of entrepreneurship to gain more control over the way they work. Over the last three years, Campbell River has seen a 50% increase in small businesses, prompting the municipality to gather feedback from existing and new entrepreneurs on ways to best help them grow and succeed in business. In 2017, the Modern Entrepreneurship Series was created to connect the City with local businesses, encourage mentorship and facilitate networking opportunities among local entrepreneurs and small business owners.
The City of Campbell River is the recipient of the Open for Business Awards 2018 Large Community Category.
