In 1994, our organization then called the North Peace Community Living Society, made the decision to purchase businesses and use them as training and employment centres.
Peace Bottle Recycling
Peace Bottle Recycling opened early in the year of 1995. It was a partnership between the North Peace Community Living Society, Recycle Plus, Northern CARE, and the Peace River Recycling Society.
The Airport Café opened on April 8, 1996, and was where Individuals were trained for six weeks working in the hospitality industry.
The program also saw Individuals trained in various community businesses for another six weeks.
It was a joint project between the Society and:

Golfworld on the Peace
The 18-hole miniature golf course opened in the summer of 1996.
The Grand Opening August 1st was attended by the local MLA, Mayor and President of the Board, Faye Boyle.
Completely Puzzled Manufacturing
The puzzle factory was purchased by the Society in January of 1997. The money to buy the business came from the sale of the Bottle Depot.
