The Almaguin Highlands Chamber of Commerce (AHCC) is proposing the implementation of the “Regional Almaguin Highlands Business, Retention and Expansion Project”. Almaguin Highlands region is made up of 18 Municipalities from Novar to Callander, Port Loring to Kearney. This project will include the participation of 13 communities all located within the Almaguin region. These communities include the following;
The Villages of Burk’s Falls, South River and Sundridge, The Municipalities of Powassan and Magnetawan, The Townships of Armour, Ryerson, Machar, Strong, Chisholm McMurrich/Monteith, and Joly and the Town of Kearney.
Economic and business development is a clear mandate for the Almaguin Region and this project will help strengthen and diversify the local economy. Engaging the business community is crucial to sustaining and growing the economy. The project will provide the needed knowledge to address any concerns, improve relationships with businesses, improve community and business competitiveness and improve capacity. The project will help develop further action plans to grow and stimulate the economy, identify and embrace opportunities and address issues or concerns.
Communities often lack the capacity to pursue and realize economic opportunities on their own. By working together, these communities can foster future growth and job creation through the pursuit of long-term, sustainable economic development.
