When we introduced our first community platform, myPelham.com in November 2009, it evolved from a volunteer campaign called ‘Think Local- Shop Pelham’ that we coordinated on behalf of the Pelham Business Association. After extensive consultation with a wide variety of business organizations and economic development support agencies, including the Pelham Business Association; Welland/Pelham Chamber of Commerce, Town of Pelham; Niagara Economic Development Corporation, Niagara Tourism, St. Catharines Small Enterprise Centre; Venture Niagara; Brock University – Niagara Observatory Project; Niagara Regional Chair, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), we launched with the Mission Statement:
“MyPelham.com is not just a website – it is the start of something completely different – a sustainable information resource that can facilitate the development of a more integrated multi-media marketing platform to support community connections, Town promotion, tourism and economic growth.”
Lofty goals -we know!
By 2013 it became apparent that we were achieving significant impact in our local Pelham community. Based on this success, we were approached by business leaders in the City of Welland to bring a Welland focused community platform to fruition. Launched in the Spring of 2014, with the support of a wide cross-section of Founding Partners, myWelland.com now showcases all sectors of Canada’s Rose City with an inspiring, collaborative voice.
