Business Retention and Expansion (BR+E) has been an important part of economic development efforts in Huron County dating back to 1999, when Seaforth was selected as a community pilot for the OMAFRA led program. The BR+E program has evolved over the years, however, its definition has remained the same – an action-oriented and community based approach to business and economic development, promoting job growth.
As of summer 2013, BR+E projects have been undertaken in communities in all nine municipalities of Huron County. As no two communities are alike, each BR+E project was customized based on the unique characteristics of each community.
Data collected from each BR+E project has been compiled and analyzed to provide a Countywide perspective. The results provide a snapshot of prevailing priorities and opportunities across the County and can be used as a guideline on how to continue to support the lower tiered municipalities in economic development.
