Many Kootenay businesses are facing difficulty these days due to labour shortages in the area. Unbeknownst to many Kootenay employers, there’s an untapped job force out there that is being underutilized. For some, like the intellectually disabled, they want to work but haven’t been given an opportunity to contribute.
We had a wonderful night with all the people who attended the Friends of Realm and Realm Texas hol’dem on Saturday, we gave away great door prizes, had a great pulled pork dinner and silent auction!

REALM would like to thank everyone who participated in our first annual ICE (Inclusive Community Employers) Awards. Hosted at the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort on Thursday, October 10th, 2019. In the pursuit of recognizing and raising awareness of businesses in the community who are leaders by providing meaningful employment to everyone. We invited the community during the month of September to nominate an organization with whom they thought deserved to be honoured. With a total of nineteen local companies nominated, in collaboration with our sponsors, we awarded five businesses with a unique honour recognizing their excellence. The remaining organizations were acknowledged for their leadership.
