The Powell River Dollar and PRLETS are projects of the Powell River Money Society, a BC Registered Society as of Jun 2012.

The Powell River Money Society will provide continuity and accountability for this project. The group of people involved include small business and self employed people, board members from at least 5 non-profit groups including the United Way and PRACL, and members of the general public. Between us we have experience in computer software and systems, the financial and banking industry (plus several other product and service industries), community development and other useful areas.
