Business Retention & Expansion
The economic well-being of Huron County is directly impacted by the successes and challenges facing Huron’s business community. In recognition of this, positive action is being taken by the Economic Development department to identify and meet the needs of local businesses.
The Huron County Business Retention and Expansion Project is a county-wide effort, supported by local BIAs, Chambers of Commerce, and others, that recognizes personal, confidential business surveys as a way to:
- Identify the needs, concerns, and opportunities of existing local businesses so that, where appropriate, action can be taken.
- Learn of the future plans of the area’s local businesses 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.
Economic Development Dashboard
Huron County’s interactive Economic Development Dashboard collects social and economic indicators from a wide variety of sources and presents them in one central location. The information presented – everything from unemployment rates to real estate trends and agricultural production statistics – is regularly updated and is collected by either Huron County staff or by reliable third-parties, such as Statistics Canada.
Internet Services (Broadband)
Huron County has recognized the need for the expansion of broadband services in rural areas. As such, Huron County is a member of the Southwestern Integrated Fibre Technology (SWIFT), a non-profit municipally-led broadband expansion project created to improve internet connectivity in underserved communities and rural areas across Southwestern Ontario.
