Entrepreneurs, technology start-ups, investors, young families and GIG workers—it’s time to discover Campbell River. An oceanfront setting, four seasons of outdoor play and a forward-thinking, progressive vibe have put Campbell River on the map as Vancouver Island’s most inspiring work scene for people with a passion for innovation.


The city is building a new Micro-Market that will provide an incubator ecosystem of short-term, retail spaces to support entrepreneurs and artisans as they grow their businesses with a vision of upscaling to bricks and mortar storefronts. The project offers up short-term units with affordable lease rates within a lively arts and culture scene downtown. The aim later this year is to create a dynamic market-style square to bring local shoppers and visitors to the downtown core and drive foot-traffic to local businesses.
