TYSON WHITNEY PHOTO The Port Hardy Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Information Centre flooded due to the failure of a hot water tank that was located upstairs in the storage loft.

Temporary home found for Port Hardy’s Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Information Centre

“You can find us in Unit 8 of the North Island Mall on Trustee Road in Port Hardy.”

The Board of Directors and Management of the Port Hardy Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Centre are happy to announce a temporary home while the building at 7250 Market Street is being repaired.

Following damage caused by a failed hot water tank, and the subsequent flooding of our building back on Dec. 31, the chamber of commerce has secured a location for temporary visitor services and for operating chamber business. As of Feb. 4, you can find us in Unit 8 of the North Island Mall on Trustee Road in Port Hardy.

Signage will be installed shortly notifying visitors arriving in our community.

The temporary location will be open from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to Noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Phone service has not yet been restored but we anticipate having our new phone system in place soon.

The best way to contact us is by email, manager@porthardychamber.com or info@visitporthardy.com, or just drop in during our operating hours.

There is no final word on the length of time it will take to repair our building, but we anticipate being able to move back sometime in April, if not sooner. Meanwhile we look forward to greeting visitors, chamber members and other members of the public in our new location.

We are grateful for the support we have received from the District of Port Hardy, Wolven IT Services, Sandra Masales, North Island Mall and chamber members and others in the community.

We also appreciate your patience while we have been working through this unplanned event. We acknowledge that this has not been ideal, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Any questions or comments should be directed to Elizabeth Aman-Hume, Executive Director.
