Lands and Economic
Development Initiative

Our Team has been providing expert economic development consulting services to municipalities across British Columbia since 2015.  Our mission is simple: to unlock the untapped potential of underutilized lands in rural areas. Unleashing the potential of underutilized lands in rural municipalities by combining the support of the Rural Dividend Fund through our application with the knowledge and expertise of our Team to identify, incent, position and promote investment and development in: Grand Forks; Lumby, Enderby, Tumbler Ridge, Nakusp, and New Denver.

Streamlined Processes
Our process begins with a thorough consultation with your municipality. We assess the suitability of the Rural Dividend Fund to provide essential financial resources for your project. We take the lead in preparing the application and expertly manage the entire review and approval process with the Provincial government. Once approved, we assume responsibility for overseeing the implementation of your development initiative.
