The Chamber organizes several projects and events throughout the year. These projects help to promote our many businesses, products and services in Quesnel and the district. These projects can vary from year to year.
SUMMER NETWORKING EVENT
The Chamber partners with Community Futures to host a fun summer networking event for businesses in the community. The past two years, this event has been a summer office Olympics with some creative games, a BBQ dinner, and prizes!
HOME AND OUTDOOR ADVENTURE SHOW
The Home and Outdoor Adventure Show has become an annual event for local businesses to showcase their products and services. While we have decided to place the Show on hiatus for 2017, mark your diaries and calendars for 2018: second weekend of May, from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. It hosts a wide variety of businesses and offers something for everyone!
Business Energy Advisor Service
Are you eligible?
If you are a BC business and spend less than $50,000 on electricity per year then you may be eligible for the LiveSmart BC: Small Business Program*.
What do you get? A Business Energy Advisor will visit your business and work directly with you to identify potential energy and money saving opportunities, including lighting, hot water, heating and ventilation.
How this works? The Business Energy Advisor will perform a FREE walk-through energy assessment of your office or building. Then, they will connect you to energy saving incentive programs, contractors and technology providers to help you make these improvements a reality (see example).
How do you register for the program? There are only 20 assessments scheduled for your area this year. You can register through the Prince George Chamber of Commerce or directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
What else is offered?
The LiveSmart BC: Small Business Champion Program is currently accepting applications from small businesses, for innovative, energy saving projects. The program will award up to $25,000 or 75% of the project cost for winning proposals. Please call Sorin Pasca at 1-250-562-2454 for more info.
