Northern Rockies Regional Municipality

Love Fort Nelson

The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality is proud to be apart of Small Town Love. Small Town Love is a movement connecting people with the independent shops and services that are the heart and soul of their communities.  Small Town Love has teamed up with Northern Development Initiative Trust to do projects in small Northern BC communities.  These projects are inspiring people to fall in love with their own hometowns and the businesses that support them!

Currently over 30 businesses are participating in the Love Fort Nelson Project.  We hope to continue to grow the Love Fort Nelson community by continuing to add businesses. Locally owned, non-franchise businesses including local artists, crafters and home based businesses can apply to the program at or can get more information at the municipal office.












Did you know?

For every $100 that you spend locally, up to $75 stays in our community, as compared to just $13 when you shop at a big box or chain store, and keeping our dollars circulating locally is key to the economic health of our community.

Local business owners donate more to local charities than non-local owners

Interesting businesses are a vital part of vibrant and thriving communities and give our small towns their character, personality and soul

Shopping small is kinder to the environment. Choosing to check around locally before you drive out of town or order online saves travel costs and emissions

When you’re spending money locally, you’re building the community as much as you are when you volunteer at the school or the sports club.

The majority of new jobs are created by small businesses. True economic diversification comes from fifty businesses who are able to create one job each, rather than one large employer creating fifty jobs that are more vulnerable to job losses.

When you shop at independent businesses, you build up a relationship with your local shop owner, and have an opportunity to co-create the kinds of businesses you want to patronize with your feedback and engagement.

Local businesses are owned by people who live here, who are fully invested in the success of the whole community.
