The latest news from northern B.C. – Northern Development’s Report to the Region – September 2012

September 7, 2012

Bella Bella Fish Plant rebirth breathes new life into the Central Coast

If the last few months have demonstrated anything, it’s that business is booming in northern B.C. In this month’s issue of the Report to the Region, we detail how the coastal community of Bella Bella forged partnerships to resurrect its fish plant and generate dozens of jobs for local residents – it also just so happened to be Northern Development’s 1,000th project!

We also found out that the Fields department store brand is alive and well in northern B.C. under new ownership. Turn to the inside of the issue to find out how a massive Ukrainian cargo plane could mean new global business opportunities for Prince George, and how a new program developed at the Trust is helping small and medium-sized companies in the region cash in on major mine, pipeline and expansion projects throughout the north.
