Council is committed to making the Township the ideal place for your business and ensuring that there is no better place in Ontario for you to live, work and play!
When Township Council established Economic Development as a strategic priority for the municipality in the fall of 2009, the goal was to foster an environment that attracts new businesses to the Township and shows those that already call Oro-Medonte home that they are a valued part of our community.
Economic Development Strategy was finalized in September of 2011 and the implementation of the ten prioritized goals contained within it now guides the Township's business development activities.
The Township's convenient location in the heart of Simcoe County provides businesses with a distinct strategic advantage. Easy and direct access to Highways 11, 12, 93 and 400 connects you to the rest of Ontario while also allowing you to recruit talented employees from a vast area.
The newly enhanced and expanded Lake Simcoe Regional Airport, with its $14-million upgrades, is also centrally located within the Township just minutes from Highway 11. Fully serviced by the Canadian Border Services Agency, the airport maintains a Commercial Port-of-Entry status, allowing for accommodation of both international passengers and freight.
Explore all that Oro-Medonte has to offer and discover the incredible opportunities that await you and your business!
