Investment-ready program assists businesses with planning and development process

Georgina introduced the Business Class Program, which is designed to assist businesses with the planning and development process. The program ensures local business owners and potential investors are assisted to the greatest extent possible from the initial meeting through the development application process.

The Business Class Program includes: 

  • Introductory meeting with staff 
  • Formal consultation meeting with staff and agencies to find out more about the requirements from planning approvals to building permit issuance
  • Development Application Fee Rebate Program
  • Referrals to Small Business Support Services and funding programs
  • Grants available through the Town’s Community Improvement Plan for the three historic business districts in Sutton, Jackson’s Point and Keswick
  • Approvals for office, industrial and institutional development applications will be expedited*

*Proposals that support the retention/creation of 5+ full-time jobs and create a minimum of 1,500 sq. ft. of institutional, office or industrial floor area.

If you are starting a new business, relocating or expanding, contact Sean Columbus to arrange a meeting at 905-476-4301 ext 2330.
