Business Retention and Expansion Final Report

In partnership with the Region of Durham, the Township conducted a Business Retention & Expansion (BR&E) project.  This community driven initiative assists with promoting jobs and business growth within the Township of Scugog. Over 114 local business owners and 29 volunteer interviewers participated in the project.

A summary of results and proposed action plan were presented to Council at the December 2, 2013 meeting. The proposed action plan includes five key areas; 1) Build relationships between government and business to be open for business, 2) Support business development and expansion to inspire entrepreneurship, 3) Invest in culture and heritage to celebrate our identity and foster business development, 4) Grow a talented workforce to create a vibrant future of business opportunities, 5) Continually improve infrastructure to serve the needs of businesses, residents and tourists.

The next steps in the BR+E project are to work through the action plan with business owners, organizations and government to keep building a vibrant local economy. The Durham Federation of Agriculture, Scugog Chamber of Commerce and Port Perry BIA are also partners in the project.  To view the reports and presentation visit our website www.scugog.ca/CAOs_Message_ED.5.php.
