About our organization

We are a registered charity, established in 1999 when a group of concerned citizens came together with funding agencies to address the social and economic impact of the closure of the area's main employer, Carnaby Mill. The Centre's vision is to actively promote projects that will contribute to a sustainable and vibrant economy for the region. Our organization identified small-scale agriculture as a potential industry in our rural areas to increase employment and food security. Specific goals articulated in our operating guidelines are achieved through the delivery of programs and services which include: Employment and Career Development Assistance through the WorkBC Program, Support Services for Small Business growth, Land-Based Youth Programs, Food Security Skill-Building workshops, Job Creation Projects, Public Computer and Internet Access and other Volunteer Community Services.
