Note: 

In some countries, it is customary to give gifts or bribes to government officials in order to get a business license.  This is not the way that we do things in Canada.  Find out the proper procedures for dealing with institutions and learn how to ask for help or guidance.

Economy

 

Logan Lake is ready for both residential and commercial growth.  In the past year there have been two new large developments, a new commercial sub-division has been built, and the first phase of a new housing development has been completed. With large investment in Highland Valley Copper Mine and exploration in the properties next to the existing mine site, our future is very promising.

Highland Valley Copper Mine employs over 1,300 people and in 2012, provided $450,000 to local charitable organizations and education.  An additional $279,000 was contributed to non-profit organizations to strengthen our communities.
