    But things are playing out differently this Summer in Kimberley

    Positive Trends in Kimberley

    Sunny outlook has little to do with SunMine, everything to do with investor confidence

    (KIMBERLEY, BC) With the past six months of national and global economic news you’d have been forgiven looking into the future with apprehension.
    But things are playing out differently this Summer in Kimberley.

    Tourism is bustling. According to City Economic Development Officer Kevin Wilson “With the exchange rate at its lowest levels in 13 years, our region is enjoying the duel benefit of more visits from Americans as well as increased visitation from neighbors in Alberta who are staying closer to home.” The publicity from the opening of SunMine, BC’s largest solar facility has created additional buzz about Kimberley.

    Kimberley accommodators report 10% year over year growth in occupancy with sold out weekends since the beginning of June and weeknight sellouts since JulyFest. A sell out equates to about 500 accommodation units with an average of 2.5 guests spending an average of $125 per day on food, entertainment, shopping, and accommodation or about $150,000 per day.

    In retail as well you can see visible signs of a positive investment climate. Two new storefronts in Marysville and two new coffee shops in the permitting process, as well as seven new businesses downtown illustrate the positive outlook of many entrepreneurs who have taken advantage of the timing to start new ventures.

    Construction activity continues at a pace not seen since 2010. Up to the end of July 2015 there were 16 new single family building starts, compared to 7 at the same point last year. With $4.8M in building permits up to the end of June, the brisk pace in Kimberley is outstripping all other communities in the East Kootenay region, the next closest is Fernie at $4.5M.

    According to Mayor Don McCormick, “We are having a great 2015. Construction is up and our events scene has seen a resurgence this year, with the continued success of events like Round the Mountain, and new events like Symphony on the Mountain, the Kimberley Medieval Festival, and the Diamond Rio Concert.”

    According the Mayor there is much more to come. “Get ready for the Black Spur Ultramarathon August 22-23 when 300 highly motivated competitors will descend on our community. These folks tend to be high-achieving professionals and their presence will be noticed.”

    Looking forward into the Fall, the Kimberley Conference Centre will host 300 delegates and spouses as part of the BC Community Futures Conference from September 23-25, and 250 delegates from the Church of God September 27 - October 5.

    The BC Chamber has updated the Chamber network with new cabinet shuffles

    Published on 05-Aug-2015 by The Chamber The BC Chamber has updated the Chamber network with new cabinet shuffles

    Jon Garson, Vice President, Policy Development and Government Relations with the BC Chamber has updated the Chamber network with new cabinet shuffles and these changes effect The Chambers and small businesses in British Columbia. Here is his synopsis:

    Minister of Small Business, Red Tape Reduction and Minister Responsible for Liquor Distribution Branch – The Hon. Coralee Oakes

    Of particular importance is the creation of a new fully-fledged Ministry dedicated to small business. This Ministry is a welcome recognition of the importance of small business and once again ensures that small business will be placed at the forefront of governments agenda. It is also welcome to see red tape reduction given such prominence.

    We are also pleased to see that the Minister will be Coralee Oakes. It is a welcome recognition that responsibility for this file continues to be placed with someone familiar with the chamber movement. We received a call from the Minister this morning where she indicated her excitement over the role and on re-engaging with the chamber and the small business community.

    Minister of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development and Minister Responsible for Translink – The Hon. Peter Fassbender

    Moving from Education Minister Fassbender now takes responsibility for one of the most critical set of files to the chamber movement. Under the Ministers mandate letter he will be responsible for reforming the Auditor General for Local Government he will also be responsible for developing and presenting options for potential processes under which local governments could either amalgamate or integrate service delivery by June 30, 2016.

    In addition the Minister also has responsibility for Translink and developing recommendations to Cabinet on ways to improve transit in Metro Vancouver. Minister Fassbender brings significant experience to this file having served as Mayor of Langley and Chair of the Mayors Council.

    Minister of Education – The Hon. Mike Bernier

    The only new entrant into cabinet Mike Bernier is the MLA for Peace River South. His promotion to Minister ensures representation for Northern BC.

    Minister of State for Emergency Preparedness – The Hon Naomi Yamamoto

    Minister Yamamoto moves from small business to emergency preparedness. This is a new position which focuses heavily on earthquake preparedness. In addition we are pleased to see a focus in Minister Yamamoto’s mandate letter on the need to reduce risks for communities threatened by floods.

    What do these changes mean for the Chambers policy agenda?

    This is a relatively small reshuffle with no Minister leaving cabinet and only one new face around the cabinet table in Mike Bernier. The reshuffle does however represent an elevation in importance for several key areas of focus for the Chamber.

    The creation of a new Ministry for Small Business and Red Tape Reduction is a particularly welcome announcement by the government. Not only does a Ministry show a renewed focus and importance of small business but a full Ministry means significant additional resources can be brought to bear on addressing the challenges facing small business.

    The other interesting point is the moving of Translink to the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. While the appointment of Minister Fassbender is welcome given his knowledge of this file the move away from transportation does raise some concerns.

    While one of the key constituents in Translink is the Mayors Council the direction given to Minister Fassbender is to consult and make recommendations on ways to improve transit in the region. The challenge is ensuring whatever recommendations are made are integrated into the provinces wider transportation plans being delivered by the Ministry of Transportation. The splitting of responsibilities for aspects of regional transportation between the ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development is not guaranteed to lead to poorer outcomes but will require close coordination to ensure an integrated approach.

    There are a number of issues outlined in the Ministers Mandate letters (copies of which can be found at http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/governments/organizational-structure/cabinet/cabinet-ministers) which are directly reflective of BC Chamber policy issues. We will be providing an analysis of the mandate letters and areas of focus early next week.
