Local businesses and organizations play a significant role in making our region what it is today. Supporting local is more important than ever and as such we are excited to launch the “Love What’s Local” initiative tailored specific for our region.
Through this initiative, our goal is to not only bring more awareness to consumers on the importance of supporting local by sharing the amazing ways businesses give back to our community, but also empower local business owners by challenging your thinking and helping you understand ways to keep people wanting to come back.
Join the movement! Contact the Chamber office today for your “Love What’s Local” package that includes a window decal and the Love What’s Local Newsletter that is filled with examples of ways businesses contribute to our region.
We are optimistic that by working together, we can have a positive impact on our region.

As part of our community-building efforts, the Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce is conducting a feasibility study on the opportunity to build a coworking centre in our region to help bring individuals who might be working on their own into a common shared and collaborative space. Often these people previously work from home, or in public spaces.
Coworking spaces often have a variety of workspaces, private offices and meeting rooms that can be used full-time like a traditional office space, or just for a few hours when needed. By bringing together a number of users, coworking facilities often provide access to better equipment than people can afford on their own. As social spaces, coworking centres also help to bring communities together, encouraging interaction between people who might otherwise not connect on a professional basis. This social interaction can lead to a sharing of skills, services, and introductions.
