Ucluelet, BC Best Small Communities:

The District of Ucluelet provided a grant of $30,000 to help the Ucluelet Chamber of Commerce restructure and shift its focus of work from providing visitor services to becoming a liaison and building a business retention and expansion program that includes employment as a vital factor in the sustainability of small businesses.

In 2017 the Ucluelet Chamber of Commerce went from crisis mode of operations to a proactive mode of delivering a program that will help small businesses overcome the challenges of doing business in a remote community… by applying best practices to attain/maintain good business health. Small communities depend on the success of their small businesses. Ucluelet is a good example of understanding this equation.
