Local Business - Community Development
The South Norfolk - Treherne Community Development Corporation (CDC) promotes and develops our area's human and natural resources in order to sustain and enhance the economic and social well-being of the area's residents.
For business start up, services include assistance in developing a business plan, researching business opportunities, researching financing opportunities and finding locations for new businesses. The Economic Development Officer also has training to guide entrepreneurs through the BizPal program.
Tourism is an important economic benefit to the area with so many attractions and recreation venues. Housing and other community services also fall under the umbrella of Community Development. Much of Economic Development is making connections.
The Community Development Office is in the Municipal Office Complex with a part-time staff person, the Economic Development Officer. While the position is funded by the Municipality of Norfolk Treherne, direction is provided by an independent Corporation. Services provided by the Community Development Corporation are free.
