The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is committed to keeping our local businesses connected with the latest available information regarding COVID-19, relief available for businesses and our local economic recovery.

Fernie Business Community COVID-19 Zoom Meeting

Businesses, social enterprises and the workforce in the Columbia Basin now have access to even more support to help them in these challenging times. In response to ongoing COVID-19-related developments—including the re-opening of many businesses—Columbia Basin Trust is expanding the ways it can help people and businesses move forward.

Kim Larsen, landscape gardener and all-around plant enthusiast is the new owner at The Green Petal in Fernie.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ban on events of more than 50 people, the Fernie Chamber of Commerce board of directors voted by resolution at the April 9, 2020 regular board meeting to conduct our AGM on Thursday 21 May at 9:00am virtually using the video conferencing software Zoom.

At the Regular Meeting of Council held on May 11, 2020, City of Fernie Council approved the 2020 budget, 2020 tax rates, and Five-Year Financial Plan.

The 2020 budget is built around a zero-percent tax increase in recognition of the significant challenges our residents and businesses are facing this year.

There's no way to sugarcoat it: If you're an investor, you haven't liked what you've seen in the financial markets recently. The effects of the coronavirus triggered a "bear" market– a decline of 20 percent or more – and more volatility is almost certainly on the way. But instead of fretting over your investment statements, you could consider some more positive approaches to this situation.

In Fernie, there is no lack of inspiring, bold women. As business owners. As community advocates. As volunteers and pioneers. It is truly a privilege to work, recreate, create, parent, and live among them.
