Boundary Economic Diversification Plan

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).
