York Region is recognizing Economic Development Week, which runs from May 6-11, 2019, by celebrating the contributions of economic development in our community. Economic vitality is a priority for Regional Council and is fundamental in maintaining a prosperous Region with a high quality of life. York Region recognizes that business and job growth are vital to promoting economic resilience and helping our communities thrive.

Our economic development team provides a range of business development services including investment marketing through YorkLink and small business support through the York Small Business Enterprise Centre. They also support broadband and innovation initiatives, as well as promote York Region’s thriving agriculture and agri-food sector.

York Region works collaboratively with local municipalities, chambers of commerce and Regional Innovation Centres such as ventureLAB, supporting entrepreneurs building scalable tech businesses.

This week, we say thank you to everyone who works to support businesses and strengthen our local economy in York Region.
