  • Porcupine Acupuncture (Natalie Yu)

    Natalie Yu was born and raised in Western Canada with traditional Chinese parents. This allowed her to find roots in both the West and East. She has several close relatives, including her mother, who are acupuncturists and Chinese medicine doctors. This has helped her better understand this incredible medical system, as it was always her first choice of health care in her family.
    Natalie had the privilege of completing her 5-year Doctorate Diploma of TCM Program at the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences in beautiful Nelson, BC. During her course of study, she also completed internships in Nelson and Vancouver, BC, and NanNing and Shanghai China.
    Natalie’s dream is to create a community-minded space to make healthcare affordable and accessible to everyone. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is currently mostly only readily available to those with good work health benefits, or, those able to afford it. There are various ways to treat seemingly unexplainable diseases and issues. Chinese medicine likes to find the root of the problem, thus, customized treatment plans can last an indefinite amount of time. The disease or problem did not start overnight, nor can we expect it to be fixed overnight. It is Natalie’s goal to help create a safe comfortable healing space, that also provides education and group support.

  • Icebreaker

    There's nothing more natural to wear in nature. New Zealand Merino Wool Clothing for Outdoor and Performance Sports.

    Everything nature creates is simple and beautifully efficient. If it doesn’t work it dies…

    When Icebreaker was founded in 1995 all outdoor performance clothing was made of synthetic fabrics from petrochemical plastics. So the goal of Icebreaker was simple - to work with nature to develop performance clothing for outdoor adventurers.

    We knew that our fiber worked – because nature had created it to ensure that merino sheep could thrive through freezing winters and scorching summers.

    Today, the Icebreaker fiber factory runs 24 hours a day on the back of a sheep. Naturally..

  • Seymour's Pub

    Seymour’s Pub opened on May 11, 2000, capturing a vision of a premium pub with a cozy atmosphere, with the ability to host a lot of guests and provide a fun nightlife alternative to going downtown. Their focus is on top quality food, ambiance, service and a commitment to support the community.

    Ten years later, they have achieved this vision and are committed to continue to strive to be the best at balancing quality and fun. They constantly revisit their menu and upgrade the pub to reflect guests’ feedback. They have successfully sponsored hundreds of local teams and raised over $100,000 for Canuck Place and $30,000 last year for Team Finn and the Ride To Conquer Cancer. The layout of the pub has allowed us to host numerous parties and get-togethers while remaining a popular choice for weekend dancing!
