The Rural Islands Economic Partnership (RIEP) is serving British Columbia's rural island communities through collaborative initiatives and engaging opportunities for inter-island communication and cooperation.
Our programs and services support the development, success, and well-being of rural island businesses, organizations, and individuals.
RIEP's network of creative artists, entrepreneurs, micro-enterprises, small businesses, and community organizations share information, support each other, and jointly advocate for policies and programs to ensure resilient and sustainable rural island economies.
Take advantage of these unique programs and services.
Rising Tide's goal is to lift up small businesses across BC’s coastal by taking love local to a a new level. We are a non-profit program of the Rural Islands Economic Partnership that is supporting rural coastal and island communities to thrive.
