Cranbrook joins the BC PNP Entrepreneur Immigration Regional Pilot

Cranbrook, BC (November 10, 2021) – More than fifty communities across BC including the City of Cranbrook have signed up to take part in the second phase of the BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) Entrepreneur Immigration (EI) Regional Pilot.

The program – a partnership between these communities and the province –  is designed support economic growth in smaller regional communities by working to attract and welcome new entrepreneurs to open businesses, one that the City of Cranbrook is proud to be a part of.

“We are experiencing record-breaking growth in our city and we can offer entrepreneurs a wonderful place to call home, “ says Darren Brewer, Economic Development Officer with the City of Cranbrook  “We have it all: a booming economy, and the amenities of a large urban center. We just need the right entrepreneurs to seize this opportunity.”

“We are proud to be a part of this pilot project, it will provide a path for entrepreneurs who can support innovation and growth in our City,” Brewer added. “This will bring new investment which will positively impact our City and our residents.”

“The Entrepreneur Immigration Regional Pilot has the potential to grow the Cranbrook economy through the attraction of new businesses,” says Helen Barron, Executive Director of the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce. “This program will also provide rural BC the opportunity to showcase our communities and demonstrate the benefits of immigrating to smaller towns in the province, rather than just our urban centres.”
