Gabriola, Mudge and Decourcy
Community Economic Development
Welcome to the Community Economic Development website for Gabriola, Mudge and Decourcy.
Last September, when the team set off to create this website, I don’t think any of us could quite see where we were going to end up. Over the past 9 months the graphics, design, content, function and flow between four websites was developed.
The Tourism Gabriola, the Gabriola Chamber and this site are all fed by the same directory database. The goal is to get all businesses, community organizations and enterprise listed for the 3 islands in one, online searchable place, for both locals and visitors to use. Gabriola Events is the fourth website.
This site is still under construction (obviously) but will be fully functional shortly. The other three sites are launched and are accessible by clicking on the top right of the navigational bar or on the logos in the footer below. Check them out!
The goals for this Community Economic Development site:
- To be full of resources, links and information for the many kinds of enterprise on the island.
- To connect, network and info share between local businesses, residents, organizations and visitors.
- To create a positive mindset and approach to our local economy, where we collaborate to build sustainability and we understand that fostering resiliency creates positive community wellbeing.
- To share the projects, collaborations and initiatives that I am working on.
Let’s start to link and connect through the Community Directory.
While we are finishing this site, I want to really encourage all local entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations to add their information into the FREE directory, so that residents and visitors can find and connect with you.
The more connected and collaborative we are as residents the brighter future for the island we can create.
