Momentum magazine called us “a town with a problem,” but we’re happy to claim the community’s addiction to bicycles, after a Census established that there is double the number of bikes as cars fighting for real estate in our garages.
The Canadian Tourism Commission declared that Pemberton is “fast becoming one of the best foodie destinations in Canada.” Michael von Hausen planning consultants said we have “great bones and an awe-inspiring context that can’t be replaced.” Snowboard Canada magazine published a feature article that celebrated Pemberton’s backyard of big-line terrain and push-the-envelope athletes.
Great bones and big lines are a good start, but it’s the people that really make Pemberton a place with heart.
Our mission at Choose Pemberton is to round up and introduce you to the growers, makers, movers and shakers of the Potato Nation, Pemberton, British Columbia.
When you discover what made them Choose Pemberton, you might choose it too.
ChoosePemberton.com is a project developed by Pemberton writer Lisa Richardson. It’s launch phase was supported by the Pemberton & District Economic Development Commission and it continues today as a labour of love. After all, if we don’t celebrate our local micropreneurs, we don’t deserve to live in cool thriving little communities.
