FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The FSJ Chamber of Commerce looked back on a year of projects and milestones accomplished last year, and it welcomed some new faces to the Board of Directors.

In December, new President Justin McKinnon took the helm along with four new directors: Cameron Eggie, Dallas Peever, Evan Jeanotte and Mitchel Chilcott.

“The overall business ecosystem in the north is complex, especially when geographically we sit atop one of the world’s most prolific energy deposits, the Montney play,” wrote past director and new president, Justin McKinnon.

“The inter-relationship between all stakeholders in our region is key to unlocking the economic value for each of our businesses, no matter what the size. The Fort St. John and District Chamber of Commerce always keeps this in our thoughts. That’s why it’s so very important that we continue to support each other.”

McKinnon is hopeful to host the Creating Energy – Northern Resource Conference in person this year, in June. The symposium brings community and business leaders together to discuss relevant issues.

Executive Director, Cheryl Montgomery highlighted some of the achievements in the 60th year of the FSJ & District Chamber of Commerce.

Some of those highlights include:

“Moving into 2022, our goals continue to provide value to our membership through advocacy, communication, resources, education and hopefully even more celebration,” wrote Montgomery.

“We will continue to face adversity and challenges head on, as they come our way, with only one intent – to do what we can to support business and economic recovery in the Fort St. John region.”
