The District of Squamish this week launched a four-part movie series highlighting local businesses.
The videos showcase a cross-section of successful companies throughout the town, stated a district press release. They were created to stimulate external business interest and excitement in the community, Squamish Mayor Rob Kirkham said. The municipality's economic development office and various stakeholders will share the videos through a variety of channels, he noted.
“These videos celebrate our diverse business community, and highlight the factors of success that make Squamish such an incredible place to do business,” Kirkham said.
The videos each focus on the themes of workforce, growth, lifestyle, and location. A highlight reel, titled “Squamish — A Place for Business” provides an overview of all four themes.
District staff worked with the Squamish Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Squamish and the Squamish Downtown Business Improvement Association, along with video producers Ear to the Ground Planning Inc., to develop the series.
