October 13, 2018 - Gala & Auction night!

Each year the gala brings the business community together for an evening of gourmet food, fun, dancing and a lively auction. The Chamber transformed the Parksville Community Centre with the theme 'All that Glitters'.  And Glitter we did, from the glittery decor to the sparkley outfits.... we definitely glittered! The Gala is our annual fundraiser for the Chamber and individuals and business community support the Gala in so many different ways.  There were fun games and prizes to be won, a wonderful 'Wall of Wine ' to win,  a lovely dinner by Spice of Life Catering, a unique silent auction and a very engaging live auction. Auctioneer Marc Bergevin from Adesa Richmond Public Auction was on hand to guide the live auction and did a great job! There were some fantastic items to bid on and such a variety. It really is through the generosity of our members and community partners that this event continues to delight our attending guests. 

Thank you to everyone who attended and to our special donors and volunteers a huge thank you from the Chamber Staff and Board of Directors.

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY - August 2018

Sustainable growth and development in the Parksville/Qualicum Beach Region require that residents can obtain and maintain fulfilling, family-sustaining work, and that employers can recruit and retain workers who contribute to productivity, profitability and long-term viability.

In early 2018, The Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce (the Chamber) and its partner, the Career Centre, identified two interrelated needs in the region:

• A lack of current and local labour market intelligence.

• No clear strategy to assist the region in ensuring a healthy, balanced labour market.

To address these issues, early in 2018 the Chamber secured funding from the Province of British Columbia to complete a Labour Market Analysis and a Labour Market Strategy.
