As a forward-thinking aboriginal community does, Tsawwassen First Nation is developing its small business program to empower its membership with the resources they need to become successful business owners.
The program includes Activ8's marketing, sales and digital media training to help entrepreneurs define their best customer and communicate effectively with them, online and offline.
Residents living in the Vancouver lower mainland are witnessing rapid growth taking place in the Tsawwassen region with the Tsawwassen First Nation's commercial development of what is expected to become one of the largest retail spaces in British Columbia, second in size only to Metrotown Mall in Burnaby.
The mega-shopping centre is located at the northwest corner of Highway 17 and 52nd Street, Ivanhoé Cambridge’s Tsawwassen Mills will include 1.2 million square feet of retail, while the adjacent Tsawwassen Commons, a Property Development Group project also under construction, will have 550,000-square-feet of outdoor retail. See news.
Both are scheduled to open in May of next year, and this will no doubt increase the number of new business opportunities in the area for Tsawwassen First Nation's membership.
We are proud to be working along side a fantastic group of people at TFN Economic Development Corporation to encourage and empower more aboriginal small business success stories in the community!
