The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that five virtual Fernie Ambassador Program sessions are scheduled for this fall.

On June 24th, Permier John Horgan and BC's Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, announced the onset of Phase 3 of the COVID-19 Restart Plan. Fernie welcomes visitors, but with trip planning and safety in mind.
