Export Navigator Pilot Project expanding to our region

An Export Navigator Pilot Project is expanding to the Kootenay Boundary.

Community Futures Central Kootenay will manage the program, with a local advisor.

 Executive Director Andrea Wilkey says studies have shown that BC businesses export less than other businesses around the country, so this is a real opportunity.

She says exporting is a way for businesses to expand their target markets, and fill in seasonal fluctuations.

Export Navigator is free, but she says businesses need to be willing to put in the work.
