Community Development Projects


Business Retention and Expansion Project (BR+E)

The Municipality of Brockton is committed to its local businesses and aims to help them thrive. The BR+E project allows the municipality to identify opportunities and remove any barriers to retain and grow existing business. This ongoing project will strengthen the community, enable business development, investment and job creation, and solidify relationships between organizations.  Existing businesses are committed to the community and the Municipality is committed to their success.

Business to Bruce

The function of the Business to Bruce Program is to support business development, business recruitment and business enhancement. This program focuses on inspiring, attracting and supporting business owners and entrepreneurs by engaging and mobilizing the local business communities and municipalities while using County level resources to give the project reach and scale.
