Economic Development

Help Shape Our Economic Future

Economic prosperity is one of five Council priorities identified in Council’s 2018-2022 Strategic Plan. To assist Council in setting strategic direction for the City’s economy, staff are currently undertaking the development of an Economic Investment Strategy. This strategy will identify a vision for the local economy and provide specific implementable actions to achieve economic resiliency and a path forward to sustain and grow a diverse and prosperous economy.

Over the coming months, consultants will be working with City staff, City businesses, the community and Council to prepare the Economic Investment Strategy. A critical component of this work will be consultation with City businesses and the community. Your feedback will inform and shape our direction, goals and priorities.
