What is the Haldimand BR+E Project?
The Haldimand County Business Retention and Expansion (BR+E) Project is a proactive approach to:
- Identify the needs, concerns, and opportunities of existing local businesses so that, where appropriate, action can be taken.
- Learn local businesses future plans with respect to expansion, relocation, and/or retention and assess where assistance can be provided.
- Demonstrate the County’s pro-business attitude and develop an effective means of communication.
Interviews will take place with various businesses starting in April 2023, and continue through to October 2023. Haldimand County staff will be connecting with businesses across all sectors, with an additional focus on businesses in the Agriculture, Downtown Retail, Manufacturing, Professional Services & Healthcare, and Tourism sectors.
A final project report that presents the high-level findings with action plan recommendations will be developed and made available following the data collection period, and be used to plan future economic development activities.
