Downtown Chilliwack Business Walks

The Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO) in partnership with the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Chilliwack Business Improvement Association (BIA) are pleased to host the first Chilliwack Business Walks on Wednesday, October 18, 2017. The partners have teamed up with City of Chilliwack officials and local business service providers to connect with the business community.

A Business Walk is a day dedicated to learning more about local businesses through short face-to-face interviews at their place of business. Volunteer teams of local leaders and community stakeholders will be going door to door visiting a large number of businesses to strengthen relationships and gather knowledge that fosters a stronger business climate.

This year, Business Walks will focus on the wide range of businesses in downtown Chilliwack, including the areas around Five Corners, Yale Road and Young Road towards Railway Avenue, and as many surrounding roads as possible. The objective is to conduct future Business Walks in different areas of the community.

Owners or managers at each visited business will be invited to answer a few short questions about their business. The data collected may then be used to develop programs, services and support for the Chilliwack business community. All information will be kept strictly confidential, with all reporting done in a consolidated format.
