The Nelson branch of CIBC Wood Gundy marked the grand opening of its new office Tuesday at 502 Victoria St.

The Nelson branch of CIBC Wood Gundy marked the grand opening of its new office Tuesday at 502 Victoria St.

The local investment and financial planning firm moved in April from 602 Baker St. to the former BC Assessment Authority office.

Manager Rob Trickey explained they simply outgrew the old space — and will continue to grow, as they expect to add three more financial advisors over the next year. The new location also offers client parking that wasn’t available previously.

“And it’s closer to Oso Negro,” Trickey joked.

As part of the celebration, Gary Whitfield, managing director for Western Canada, presented a $2,500 donation to Make a Change Canada, a Nelson-based national charity that provides skills training to people facing employment challenges.
