Major projects Web portal opens doors

It is now up to the business community to take the lead and register within the site’s supplier data base

The Campbell River and District Chamber of Commerce has launched its Campbell River Major Projects Web Portal site.

It is now up to the business community to take the lead and register within the site’s supplier data base to promote all the business skills, trades, equipment and supplies that exist in Campbell River and surrounding area.

The portal project was proposed and developed by the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce with key project partners including BC Hydro with its proposed John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project, the Vancouver Island Construction Association and the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance.

Chamber Executive Director Colleen Evans says what binds these partners are their eagerness to promote and invest in Campbell River’s economic stability and growth. This collaboration has led to a strategically developed website that’s a one-stop, local supplier and community resource centre that will maximize the economic opportunities flowing from major construction projects in the area.

“This portal demonstrates in very real terms that Campbell River is open for business,” Evans says.

Randy Richardson, BC Hydro’s John Hart project manager says, “BC Hydro has been pleased to be involved since the inception of this web portal concept, and it’s great to see it come to fruition. BC Hydro can help foster economic development directly through our capital projects, like John Hart, but also indirectly through unique community initiatives like this one that can be used to position the community for future projects.”

To explore the Portal go to:  CR.majorprojects.ca. Businesses who wish to register their company should find the “Register as a Supplier” box on the Portal Home Page.
