Local employers asked us for help in attracting and keeping employees. This initiative proactively addresses the critical issue of skills shortages in our region.
By innovatively using digital tools and new techniques, we can make progress in dealing with this clearly-identified impediment to community wellbeing, sustainability, and economic health.
Created locally with firsthand community knowledge and operated as a public service, Start Here Okanagan will offer a positive and progressive visitor experience. And it will become the definitive source for timely and accurate data about employment and economic opportunities in our region.
Now, people considering a move here will have access to useful information that will support them in making better decisions. This will help to ensure easy and productive relocations to our community, as well as promote our region to companies considering expansion or start-up operations.
