Calling all makers and doers!

There is plenty of industry in the Kootenays – logging, metallurgical, solar, hydro and yes, there’s a thriving tech sector too, but a defining feature of the Kootenay economy is entrepreneurship and an industry of handmade, artisanal goods. This is the perfect place to market your quality product. At farmers markets and even in our big chain supermarkets, local producers are well supported.

Here you are surrounded by nature and have access to the finest ingredients. Whether you’re a carpenter, cook, soap maker, or just willing to learn something new, one of these businesses could be for you.
