Business Retention & Expansion Program

The Business Retention and Expansion Program (BRE) is on-going work, based on the provincial guideline, that encourages existing local businesses to stay and grow in the community. The BRE program helps create a healthy local business climate by supporting the businesses who have invested in Smithers.  By forming relationships, having regular discussions and engaging with businesses, the Town’s Economic Development Department will learn about the current business climate, as well as understand the challenges and opportunities that face the business community; and subsequently action items with follow-up.
