Business Walks

Business Walks

The COEDC introduced the Business Walk Program to Canada in 2012. It is recognized as a Best Practice by the Province of British Columbia.

Checking the Pulse

Every October during Small Business Month, the COEDC teams up with partners from local municipalities and business support organizations to take the pulse of the region’s small business community.

A Voice for Small Business

Feedback from small businesses during the annual Business Walk is shared publicly, with elected officials, staff and partners, giving small business a strong voice in the community. The COEDC listens to what small business owners say during Business Walks to create year round action plans to support business.

Helping You Grow

Businesses looking to grow or needing support receive consultation and expertise from COEDC experts after the business walk.
