Haida Gwaii Business to Business is an initiative of Misty Isles Economic Development Society designed as an information sharing portal for small business. HGB2B is a general store for the business community and labour force of Haida Gwaii. Due to minimal usage, this project will be decommissioned in 2016 - please contact us for more information on local procurement.
Procurement Database - The Procurement Database will be a labour force, service and product inventory for the islands. Suppliers are encouraged to fill out the form on the right hand side of the home page with as much detail as possible. This information will be put into a supply database which will be housed at the MIEDS office. Through this site, an email or a phone call; contractors, persons or businesses can request information for a particular service or product and the contact information housed in the database will be forwarded to that person.
Employers - The Employers tab will contain information on programs, services, webinars, legislation updates, taxes, training, etc. that will assist island entrepreneurs. Any information from outside sources will include direct links so to make accessing the information that much easier.
