Economic Development Strategy

As the St. Catharines economy continues to evolve, City Council has approved a new six year economic development strategy to help retain, grow and attract investment and employment to the community.

The City's 2017-2022 economic development strategy was approved by City Council at its meeting on Sept. 25. The strategy outlines 15 objectives and more than 70 actionable items to expand existing businesses and attract new investments. The economic development strategy aligns with Council's Strategic Plan and supports the City's vision to become the most innovative, dynamic, sustainable and livable city in North America.

The keys to economic growth outlined in the strategy include being flexible to emerging trends and maintaining competitive incentives and funding programs to support business growth. The plan emphasizes the importance of growing partnerships and collaboration with strategic stakeholders like the Niagara Region, Brock University, Niagara College, Team Niagara and the local businesses.
