Over the past five years, economic development has focused on building a solid foundation built on economic development best practices including, business retention and expansion (and recovery), business attraction and workforce development. This foundation has allowed for the strategic planning process to be carried out in house, leveraging the connections within the community to undertake extensive public, sector, and stakeholder consultation.

For community economic development to be done successfully, it requires consistent focus over time on incremental improvements working toward common goals. This economic development strategic plan offers a mix of short-term and longer-term strategies designed to improve economic development’s performance in each of these areas which build upon the current foundational activities the department undertakes.
