Project “I Love Mission”
The District of Mission has initiated an important campaign designed to give a boost to the local business community. The campaign is taking a multi-prong approach and includes marketing, shop-local messaging, SWAG and also an online educational component.
This online educational training platform is designed to help with some of the challenges being faced currently and into the future. The program includes free online educational webinars, open to the entire Mission business community, with the first programs being held by the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce. Watch the videos below.
