Our economic development department has a mandate to promote Niagara on a global scale and to work in partnership with the region's 12 municipalities to provide effective, innovative services that encourage investment in and travel to the region, along with business support services to attract, maintain and increase jobs in Niagara.
The department supports the retention and growth of existing companies and encourages new companies to relocate in Niagara.
Our strategy is the result of consultation with key stakeholders throughout the Niagara region and identifies four target sectors (manufacturing, including green technologies, agri-business, tourism, and transportation and logistics) and supporting actions that will guide economic development activities.
Actions, focused on encouraging job growth, propose a balanced approach between getting the conditions right to facilitate business growth, helping our existing businesses succeed, and attracting new investment, in order to achieve maximum results.
The Niagara Commercial Properties Site is a comprehensive inventory of available industrial properties in Niagara, Canada.
It is an integrated partnership with all of Niagara's 12 local municipalities and the Niagara Association of REALTORS. Industrial, commercial and agricultural properties from the Niagara Association of REALTORS' MLS system are updated nightly and additional properties, posted directly to the system by registered users, are updated on an ongoing basis. The sophisticated search criteria and detailed information on more than 900 properties have made this a successful tool in promoting the industrial, commercial and agricultural opportunities in Niagara.
