Shop Local BC: A Partnership to Support Local Business

Together, our Credit Unions have partnered on an initiative to open up new revenue streams for our local businesses across Southeast British Columbia.

The “Support Local BC” program was originally launched as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and allows participating businesses to sell gift cards online, at no cost to them. The website allows the public to purchase gift cards for themselves or as gifts for others – with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the businesses. There are no fees for business owners at any point. Since its launch in April, communities of all sizes are seeing the benefit.

Thanks to our collaborative sponsorship, this program is now open to all independently owned local businesses, across the Boundary Country, Columbia Valley, and Kootenay regions.
