About the Project
The Boundary Region, led by the Village of Midway and Community Futures Boundary, is banding together to create a Boundary Economic Diversification Plan that aims to enhance the health and vibrancy of the entire region including Grand Forks, Greenwood, Midway and Regional District Kootenay Boundary electoral areas C/Christina Lake, D/Rural Grand Forks, and E/West Boundary. This plan will act as a roadmap to strengthen the economic diversity and resiliency of the Boundary region amidst ever changing economic realities. This has been made possible by funding from the Province of BC through the Rural Economic Diversification and Infrastructure Program (REDIP).
We will be scheduling opportunities for you to get engaged in the plan over the coming months. Check back regularly to see our updated schedule! There are multiple ways for you to get engaged including:
- Focus Groups
- One-on-One Interviews
- Town Hall Meetings
- Pop-Up Booths
- Online Survey
Engagement Successes to Date
Having real input and collaboration with the region is a significant part of beginning successful economic diversification. There has been great input from the entire region to date, but we aren’t done yet! Some highlights have been:
