Join us for an engaging seminar which features our biggest asset – our natural and cultural heritage!
There are endless opportunities to innovate and create businesses based upon our natural and cultural resources. We have rich resources and a skilled workforce in the Corner Brook and Bay of Islands region which have a tremendous potential for economic development opportunities, both large and small. Through combining our natural and cultural resources with ingenuity, empowerment, and passion, we can create a thriving and diverse modern industry in the region which celebrates our unique skills, culture, and natural assets!
• To inspire current and future business owners to develop branded experiences and products which celebrate our unique cultural and natural assets.
• To showcase craft workers and business owners who are creating culturally and environmentally sustainable products and experiences.
• To open a dialogue on the importance of maintaining local skills and knowledge in order to support economic development while preserving culture and distinct community attributes.
• To encourage current and future business owners to sustainably source local raw materials and services when available and to develop new opportunities when they are not.
