Video: An innovative non-profit helps revitalize downtowns in British Columbia

The Northern Development Initiative Trust board, regional advisory committees, and staff have a passion for growing the economy of central and northern British Columbia.

When the Premier of British Columbia announced the Northern Development Initiative Trust, it was on the premise that, “The best economic development decisions for the North should be made in the North.

Northern Development is an independent, non-profit corporation; a catalyst stimulating economic growth through investments in grassroots, community-led projects.

The Community Revitalization program is an aggressive incentive program that is a partnership between communities and Northern Development that encourages new development and redevelopment in central and northern British Columbia.

This innovative program provides an immediate financial incentive for developers that is significantly more attractive than any revitalization tax exemption program currently available in the region.

Note from Storm: I’ve had two speaking engagements in Prince George, BC over the past decade, and am very happy to see this program making such a big difference in their downtown.
