Staycation In the Nation was created with compassion, love and a dream to help our Nation become one step closer to a discrimination free Country. We have watched businesses and people suffer so much during this pandemic and therefore wanted to find a way to help small businesses survive the now, and going forward in our future. I am passionate about helping with the struggles many Canadians are faces with. One Nation. Together. Is our Mission. We are dedicated to help promote, support and encourage our fellow British Columbians as well as Canada as a whole. We encourage small businesses and communities to consider adjusting to be more inclusive in there environment, staffing and culture. Over the last couple of years we have been able to successfully watch the growth amongst people we have connected with. The reward for us, is the positive changes people are making.

Premier's People's Choice

The Premier's People's Choice award would be an honor to receive. I believe that all of my efforts have been well received by many, and have made an impact on our local families, friends, entrepreneurs and small businesses in British Columbia, as well as the remainder of Canada. This award would would allow me to increase my network and educate our fellow Canadian's. The winnings would be utilized to continue our Staycation In The Nation efforts with Movements such as PRIDSITN (LGBTQ) IndiSITN (Indigenous), SheSITN (Women In Business) and more... I will continue to devote myself , and work towards a discrimination free Canada. I will support, promote and educate those around me to get closer to that goal. I am embarking on my fourth trip around this great Nation, in efforts to encourage our fellow Canadian's to do the same. I believe in what we have achieved, I am proud of my team, my friends, my colleagues and my Country. I am empowered by the changes we have already made, and the changes we can all achieve together. #sitnmovement
