hinton first

We are #HintonFirst;
a local movement to better Hinton, Alberta by encouraging community members to consider #HintonFirst prior to buying, selling, volunteering, or recreating 

The Town of Hinton is proud to support #HintonFirst.


Businesses have a large stake in our community and a role to play in developing and supporting the ideas of #HintonFirst. Customers are looking for service, selection and value from local businesses. A #HintonFirst business strives to shine in these areas, and to accept feedback from customers on how to make their experience the best it can be.


When a resident buys locally, they are doing more than just making a purchase; they’re making an investment in their community. But #HintonFirst is also about much more than just shopping local. It’s about spending your time and your energy experiencing and supporting Hinton as your adopted or original hometown.


Visitors to Hinton have a unique opportunity to try out what makes Hinton proud. Our community is home to a large number of shops, restaurants, and service providers that are eager for a chance at your business. As well, the recreational and outdoor opportunities offer a full itinerary of experiences for you, your family and friends. Find out how you can help to put #HintonFirst.

Current Initiatives

#HintonFirst Bucks

The Hinton Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Town of Hinton through Economic Development are looking at creating a local shopping program to keep spending in the community through a local currency called #HintonFirst Bucks. Now more than ever we need to put our spending focus on supporting our local businesses and keep dollars spent in Hinton.
