Visitor Information Booth
Located near the BC Ferries terminal on Sturdies Bay Road, the Chamber operates an 'Information Booth', where visitors to the island are warmly greeted. As well, members can have their brochures, pamphlets and cards 'racked' in the booth, where visitors can easily access this information. The cost of racking your business information is included in your annual membership fee.
Community groups or organizations can post information about their 'special event' on one side of the booth. Many visitors to the island consult the board to find out what events are going on.
The Chamber also makes available, free of charge, a 12x18" double-sided colour 'community map'. This map outlines all of the shoreline accesses, walks and beaches available on Galiano for our visitors. As well, it has a small written profile of Galiano.
Opening of the booth throughout the winter month depends only on members being involved. So, if you have some time on a weekend and can meet one of the morning ferries, please let us know. The success of our booth this time of year depends entirely on our membership helping to run it.
Each summer, from the first week of June until the end of August, the Chamber Board hires a Full Time Summer Student to man the booth & greet Visitors as they arrive off the ferry. The Chamber has had great success in selecting students who were keen to share their knowledge of the island, as well as to be a reliable and friendly resource for visitors.
