  • Susan Carter

The committee is further supported by a number of resource people.

Background

The City of Cornwall has had an Economic Development Strategic Plan since the late 1980s. Since that time it has been updated on average every 5 years, usually with significant community input and consultation.

The Economic Development Strategic Plan is commissioned for the City's Economic Development Department. Strategies and action plans need to be flexible to accommodate changes in the economy such as technology breakthroughs, senior government policy decisions and general market conditions. Typically, an Economic Development Strategic Plan will also address other aspects of the community that relate to economic development, and therefore some action plans may be earmarked for other community organizations.
