Business Retention and Expansion Program

The creation of the City’s Business Retention and Expansion Program (BR&E) was an initiative started in 2004 in partnership with the North Bay & District Chamber of Commerce to help strengthen our existing business base. We believe that retaining the existing businesses in the community and working to help them thrive is just as important to the health of our local economy as attracting new business. This initiative is modeled after a Provincial Program and has been put in place as a mechanism for the Economic Development Department to take more proactive approach to assisting our local firms. To this day, we have an on-going visitation program that enables us to learn about business challenges and opportunities and while working with stakeholders to help accomplish resolve.
If you are interested in having a confidential BR&E visitation to your business, please contact The Economic Development Department directly at telephone number 474-0400 ext. 2417 or investin@northbay.ca.

If you are interested in having a confidential BR&E visitation team meet with your firm, please contact The Economic Development Department directly at telephone number 474-0400 ext. 2417 orinvestin@northbay.ca.
