Expanding or Starting a new business in Georgina, Ontario?

Georgina introduced the Business Class Program which is designed to assist businesses with the planning and development process in 2018. 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. 
Our Business Class program includes: 
  • Introductory meeting with staff who will be involved in the development process
  • Formal pre-consultation meeting with staff and agencies to find out more about the requirements from planning approvals to building permit issuance
  • Referrals to Small Business Support Services and funding programs
  • Grants available through the Town’s Community Improvement Plan for the 3 historic business districts in Sutton, Jackson’s Point and Keswick
  • Development Application Fee Rebate Program
  • Whenever possible, approvals for office, industrial and institutional development applications will be expedited*

*Proposals that support the retention/creation of 5+ full-time jobs and create 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.
