Jocelyn Cowie

My goal for Grand Forks is to implement a plan for local sustainability, especially for our food supply.

In 1981, I started Sprouting Cottage Industries a home-based business.

My success story inspired our Social Services to start a business training program for single mothers trying to launch their business ideas.

Through my 26 years of medical practice, and as a published thesis writer, I have discovered a solution for pain.

In 1997, I launched ASSESSx Technology Ltd. to develop a pain diagnostic and treatment device that will answer most pain problems.

After all, pain is the single biggest cost to our health care system, according to the Institute of Medicine and the Human Health Service it is costing tax payers up to $635 billion a year to manage. I believe in finding solutions and I enjoy debate and have developed communication and leadership skills in starting and managing my own companies.

I want to help our youth and have a plan to help give our youth more to do and expand their horizons.

Many townships have developed successful theme villages that attract tourist traffic.

We are renowned for our local borscht and have a rich heritage culture that once made linens from flax and hemp, made bricks, had a jam factory, flour factory, made oil and breads in outdoor brick ovens.

Theme labeling products and selling Grand Forks products aboard will attract tourist to come back and see our local economic solutions.

I look forward to hearing from you through email at or by phone at 250-442-2547.
