Proud to live local.

“Local” is a bit of a buzzword in the modern world. In Riverview, local is a way of life, not a trend. A small, tight-knit community, our people have genuine pride in the businesses and people that choose Riverview as home. We appreciate and support our neighbours. We value the shops, restaurants, and services that share our Town with us.

Speaking of community, we host business mixers to connect like-minded entrepreneurs, local business owners and business support professionals. We also feature new and existing businesses in our ongoing spotlight series and have a monthly newsletter to keep you in the know. You could say being a connector is our calling. Time to get involved!
