Eastern Ontario Focus Group Sessions

The Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus (EOWC) has long appreciated the contributions that economic development makes to the sustainability of the region and its constituent municipalities. With that objective in mind, it has worked to garner substantial levels of funding that has helped to build a stronger local and regional economy. Its successes include the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN), the Eastern Ontario Development Fund, and the Eastern Ontario Development Program.

Building on these efforts, the EOWC is now championing the preparation of a regional Economic Development Strategy for Eastern Ontario. The result of this work will be the creation of a foundational document that will inform and advise key stakeholders on the priorities for economic development across the region, and stress the importance of an interdisciplinary and regional approach to addressing our challenges and opportunities. The focus will be on identifying relevant actions that will enable the creation of high quality jobs, as well as wealth and investment across eastern Ontario.

This project has been made possible through the support of the EOWC, together with the Eastern Ontario Mayors’ Caucus, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada through the Eastern Ontario Community Futures Development Corporations (CFDCs) Network.

As part of this strategic planning exercise, we are reaching out to private and public sector stakeholders to provide further opportunity to comment on the major themes and considerations that are emerging for the plan. We welcome your participation and insight in these discussions at one of the regional focus groups running from September 4 - September 10. To participate please register at one of the following links. Registration is simple and quick. Once you have registered you will receive a confirmation email noting a successful registration.

The closest sessions to Quinte West are on Thursday, September 5th

Kingston Focus Group, Morning Session, 8:00AM-10:00AM

Kingston Focus Group, Afternoon Session, 12:00PM-2:00PM

In addition to the focus groups, we also ask that you please take 15 minutes to express your views on eastern Ontario’s present and future economic priorities and opportunities by completing this survey. All comments will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Should you have any questions regarding this initiative, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The focus group registration process is being managed by Jason Dias, a member of our consulting team. He is available at 416 367 3535 x 229 or jdias@millierdickinsonblais.com. 

Thank you for your time and involvement. Sincerely, Jason Dias Millier Dickinson Blais
