Business Growth

It all comes down to jobs - people can't stay in communities if there is no work. Municipalities have a role to play in encouraging and supporting business growth. Do you know your business community? Do you know the struggles and opportunities they are facing? Can you help?

  • celebrate and recognize business success
  • encourage entrepreneurs and support those who try and don't succeed the first time.
  • facilitate connections - help people find mentors, partners, workers, funding.
  • align municipal mandates to support economic growth (planning, permits, taxes, infrastructure, information, quality of life)
  • recognize and support benefits of economic growth in the region, beyond own municipality
