TNRD launches Invest Thompson-Nicola BC website

www.investthompsonnicolabc.ca is an interactive website that helps business leaders and entrepreneurs locate the best investments

The federal government and Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) have launched a new regional investment attraction website, Invest Thompson-Nicola BC.

Showcasing the high amount of economic activity taking place in the rapidly growing TNRD, Invest Thompson-Nicola BC (www.investthompsonnicolabc.ca) is an interactive website that helps business leaders and entrepreneurs locate the best investments in the region.

Funding for the $115,000 project was made possible through the TNRD and participating communities, as well as Northern Development Initiative Trust, Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust and the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada.

“Our government is pleased to support the Thompson-Nicola Regional District’s investment attraction web portal,” said Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod. “This resource will help to attract and retain global investment for the region and in turn create jobs and secure economic growth so that our community can prosper.”

Invest Thompson-Nicola BC features an interactive map indentifying key major projects and investment opportunities throughout the region, including specific details about each project. In addition, the website includes comprehensive profiles of regional communities and rural areas to showcase the TNRD as a preferred place to invest.

“The investment portal is important because it’s going to provide a comprehensive look into the regional district and its communities. It will be a valuable tool for stakeholders to use in attracting new business to their communities,” said TNRD chair Randy Murray. “When investors are looking to locate their business they need to know that there will be a good return on their investment and the Thompson-Nicola web portal is going to provide that information, and more.”

 

Municipal economic development offices throughout the region played a critical role in the development of Invest Thompson-Nicola BC, developing content for site-selector profiles and working with business and industry partners to develop profiles of key investments. Invest Thompson-Nicola BC is the fifth investment portal of its kind developed to showcase the incredible amount of economic activity under way across B.C.
