We need our own economic development manager, who is the voice of businesses to all levels of government. Our manager’s job will be to pursue foreign businesses and investors to Sicamous.
Work with other communities to increase connections. The job will include marketing Sicamous, as well as using the Internet to our advantage. We need someone here full time working on it. The catch is we need to change bylaws to encourage investors, and we need to streamline processes. We need to think outside the box and find ways to help make things happen instead of putting up roadblocks.
