Bruce County has launched a website showcasing its industries, investment opportunities and the economic development supports available in an effort to attract business and investment in the region.
Bruce County announced on Aug. 17 that InvestInBruce.ca was live as a destination for prospective entrepreneurs and investors looking to explore the region’s “abundant opportunity and unique strengths.”
“We are excited to unveil the new website, showcasing the incredible potential of our region and encouraging business investment in our vibrant and welcoming communities,” Bruce County manager of economic development Jeffrey Loney said in the release. “The website is the doorway to Bruce County for people looking to locate their business here, whether it’s industry or retail, or a brand new business.”
The website includes profiles of communities throughout Bruce County, from Tobermory, Lion’s Head and Ferndale in the north, Lucknow and Ripley in the south, Port Elgin and Southampton in the west, Chesley and Tara in the east and everywhere in between.
It also highlights various sectors that contribute to the county’s economy, including tourism, energy, agriculture, and contains information about the lifestyle the county affords, the workforce available, and the cost advantages of doing business in the area.
It highlights the team at the county working on economic and business development, current projects and programs being undertaken, and resources available.
The website is part of a broader business attraction strategy at Bruce County, which kickstarted in March, when a delegation from Bruce County attended the MIPIM real estate and property development festival in Cannes, France, in March.
While there, the delegation pitched a variety of investment opportunities in the county’s key sectors of agriculture, tourism and energy. The event attracted more than 26,000 attendees and over 2,400 companies looking for new investment
