Business Engagement Program

The best way for Council to understand the needs, key issues and potential growth opportunities of the business community is to get out and engage with businesses.  A typical business visitation would involve a member of the Economic Development & Tourism Unit making a 30-45 minute appointment to visit a business and discuss

Council wants to learn more about local business and gain an insight into how they can provide further assistance. Businesses will be taken through a business assessment to determine what their needs are and the process will assist them in connecting with the resources, training, funding and advisors they require to grow. The appointment will leave businesses with an understanding of the resources that are available for businesses to succeed.
