We’re very excited to learn that East Coast Lifestyle has sourced a major employer in our region - Stanfield's to produce their newest “Made in Nova Scotia” collection! Alex MacLean, founder of ECL was a guest presenter at our 2014 Inspirationworx! Career Fair – at that time, he was only one year into his business venture. Alex shared his story of how a course assignment turned into a thriving business venture to those youth in attendance – showcasing entrepreneurship as a viable career choice! By creating a great product that promotes a great place, he made something special.#entrepreneur #supportlocal #novascotia ... See MoreSee Less
