The Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission has launched a new website.

Billing itself as the region’s primary resource for business, the COEDC says its new InvestKelowna.com website is the chief marketing and informational tool used in its activities to attract businesses and investors from around the world and support local businesses.

The new site design was funded with 50 per cent matching dollars from Invest Canada Community Initiatives, a federal program focused on the attraction, retention, and expansion of foreign direct investment.

Along with a visually rich modern design, the navigation has been upgraded to help foreign investors, local businesses and individuals access pertinent information quickly and with ease.

“With this new design, we are meeting the needs of both local and international businesses, investors and individuals,” said Corie Griffiths, COEDC director.

“We are confident that the modern design, improved navigation and new features will help our many audiences access a wealth of resources and information about living, working and doing business in our region while promoting the exciting opportunities that abound in the Central Okanagan.”

The economic development commission is a service of the Regional District of Central Okanagan and is dedicated to fostering sustainable economic growth in the region by supporting existing businesses and encouraging new investment.
