Busy Spring in Store for Ucluelet Chamber

Busy Spring in Store for Ucluelet Chamber

- Erin MacDonald is the General Manager for the Ucluelet Chamber of Commerce. She can be reached at 250.726.4641 or chamberoffice@uclueletinfo.com.

UCLUELET - Spring is a time of fresh beginnings, so it’s fitting that after two months of renovations, the Ucluelet Chamber of Commerce office is back open for business with an updated space to serve our membership. And with a busy spring and summer season upon us, we are wasting no time getting back into the swing of things!

With the provincial election looming just around the corner, the Chamber is committed to providing our membership and the broader community-at-large an opportunity to engage with each of the local provincial candidates,

to learn more about their platforms and positions on the unique issues that impact our citizens on the west coast.

All members of the community are invited to attend our All Candidates’ Meeting on April 26, 2017 at the Ucluelet Community Centre from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. As the community’s non-partisan voice of business, the Ucluelet Chamber will not be endorsing any candidates at the event.

In addition to our All Candidates’ Meeting, we will also be sharing general information leading up to the election to help inform our local voters how they can register and update their voting information, along with where to cast their ballot on May 9th.

While the hustle and bustle of election season is keeping us on our toes, we are also closing in on the finish line when it comes to planning our 18th annual Edge to Edge Marathon, taking place on June 11.

Due to construction in the Pacific Rim National Park, we had to make the tough decision to scale back on the scope of this year’s event, and will only be offering the half-marathon and 10 km routes for our racers this year. We are looking forward to revisiting our old format next year, and offering the full-marathon experience.

The Edge to Edge is a strong economic driver for our region, and although this year’s event has undergone a few changes, the rugged beauty of our coast is always a draw, and we look forward to welcoming hundreds of runners from across the country for a unique racing experience they aren’t soon to forget!
