To entice young families we need opportunities for them to make a living in Penticton a possibility. People want to live here but it is difficult to stay here without a proper income. We need to encourage entrepreneurship and we need to shift a little of our focus on spousal opportunities so that families aren’t relying solely on one income when they have a family. We also need to fill a void as far as our family amenities are concerned in town.
