Building Links celebrated its 20 year anniversary on May 29, along with 75 other guests at Crown Isle.

Building Links started as a home-based business by Clarice Coty and published its first edition on May 17, 1993. A total of 1,001 issues were published as of May 29, 2003.

The business now distributes a newsletter weekly to subscribers around  Vancouver Island, B.C. and Alberta. The magazine follows new construction and reports weekly on new tenders, building permits, proposed development and industry news.

The company moved from its home-based office to an office at 2459 Cousins Rd. in Courtenay in 2010.

Now employing six people, Building Links has grown to offer online advertising through it’s newly launched website.

“We really enjoyed our trip down memory lane at our anniversary event,” Coty said. “A lot has changed over 20 years, but the important things stay the same – we wouldn’t be where we are today without our loyal clients, devoted staff, and the support of family and friends.

To sign up for four free issues, go to www.buildinglinks.ca.
