410 Businesses visited by Business Walkers from EDC, Chamber and City

October already!  WOW. Several of the staff, Board and Ambassadors kicked off small business month by participating in the Business Walk yesterday. Approximately 410 businesses were visited!


It was a great day to be out visiting local businesses for the purpose of gathering information from owners and managers about the general state of commerce, specific to their area of town.

  • The Business Walk is an annual regional initiative coordinated by the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission.  Business organizations and stakeholders throughout the Central Okanagan come together for a common purpose: to gather information from a large number of businesses in a short period of time. 
  • The surveys are treated confidentially and entered into a database which is used to create reports around four specific questions.  The reports will be used to identify areas for program development, action and improvement. 

Detailed results of the Business Walk will be released by the COEDC


If we didn't come knocking at your door - we hope to catch you next year.
