Brockville Economic Development Strategic Directions Updated Report
"In 2015 a facilitated workshop was conducted with Brockville’s community and business leaders to determine where future strategic directions are required to continue Brockville’s economic development growth. The results were captured and incorporated into the strategic update in addition to reviews of progress since the previous strategy and socio-economic data from Statistics Canada. This strategic update contains three primary components:
- Beyond the 2009 Economic Development Strategy is a chapter dedicated to reviewing some broad directions of the previous strategy and a discussion of key activities undertaken by the City to move economic development forward in Brockville since 2009
- Where is Brockville Now? provides a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) analysis and competitive advantages and disadvantages analysis to identify Brockville’s current assets, challenges or barriers, and competitive positioning
- Where does Brockville Need to Go? translates the results of the preceding analyses into a series of opportunities and action areas, accompanied by performance measures, the role played by the local economic development office (as core or non-core focused), and potential partners to help translate actions into outcomes."
