Kootenay Booth returns to UBCM

Columbia Power has teamed up with the Regional Districts of Kootenay Boundary, Central Kootenay and East Kootenay to showcase the Kootenays to British Columbia at the annual Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) Convention.

Approximately 2,000 delegates from 196 member communities are gathering in Vancouver this week for the UBCM’s 110th annual convention, themed ‘Navigating the Local Landscape.’

“We are so pleased to be a part of the team taking the Welcome to Kootenay Country display to this year’s convention,” says Audrey Repin, Director of Stakeholder and External Relations for Columbia Power Corporation. “At past venues, the booth has received recognition for being the only collaborative display of various communities – a true reflection of the Kootenays.”

This year’s Convention theme fits perfectly with the goals of the Kootenay Country booth: showcase the Kootenays and individual communities to a widespread audience and highlight the wide variety of recreation, accommodation, and tourism attractions that our area has to offer.

Representatives from local communities take turns participating at the booth, providing information on the region and highlighting our distinct piece of the province.

Columbia Power is a Crown corporation wholly owned and controlled by the Province of British Columbia. Columbia Power’s mandate is to manage assets and undertake power project investments as the agent of the province.
