Welcome Newcomers to our Valley!

The CV Chamber of Commerce and WeCONNECT have partnered together to launch Welcome CV, a volunteer initiative introducing new residents and babies to our valley.

Since Welcome Wagon officially closed its doors in May of 2020, the area from Spillimacheen to Canal Flats has lacked this opportunity.

Welcome CV will contact various businesses to donate gift certificates, samples, coupons, etc.  These items will make up a Welcome Package which includes a community guide, attractions, calendar of events, volunteer opportunities and more.  WeCONNECT clients will assemble the Welcome Packages and deliver them to new valley residents and babies.

WeCONNECT, a non-profit organization serving the Valley for more than 60 years provides 24/7 support to residents at Mount Nelson Place.  Through our Community Inclusion Program, Welcome CV will offer our clients with diverse abilities the opportunity to foster inclusion through social engagement.

Newcomers will see/hear about Welcome CV by CV Chamber social media, the Pioneer, word-of-mouth, and possibly posters on businesses’ doors.  Sign up will be through a new website hosted by CV Chamber called welcomecv.ca
