A movement to strengthen our local economy by encouraging residents and businesses to consider Hinton, Alberta FIRST before spending time, money, or energy elsewhere.
To foster the development of local non-profits, businesses, and visitor experiences through an encouraged change in mentality, as well as making our community as good as it can be for its citizens by having the products and services they require to live their lives. We ask that all residents consider the local potential of our existing services before heading out of town to spend, volunteer or recreate.
Small Town Love defines a localist as “Someone who understands that real strength comes from community. From sharing, to partnerships, to collaborations and co-working, localists see their neighbours and other businesses as members of their team, not competition. The movement to become more local is about people and communities that want to be healthier, become wealthier and live in a more sustainable community that is kind and inclusive to all people.”
While there will be some promotions as #HintonFirst gains momentum, the real reward is a more collaborative and better served community. #HintonFirst aims to help promote all the services we have available in the community, and show those considering coming to Hinton that there is an appetite for their services and a community dedicated to supporting each other.
We all have a role to play in the strength of our community whether we are buying, selling, volunteering or recreating in Hinton. #HintonFirst believes that every resident and business has a part to play in the growth of our community. #HintonFirst also doesn’t ask that residents only spend money and time locally; it simply asks that you consider local options before heading out of town.
