Our Business Retention and Expansion Program
“The average community will derive 76% of its new jobs and capital investment from existing business.” Eric P. Canada - A Community’s best companies are your competitor’s best prospects!
Through a Business Retention and Expansion Program (BR&E) the PMEDC staff guide business interviews to raise the overall economic vitality of the community. The information obtained through the interviews can identify companies that are looking for assistance, their growth potential, as well as the potential risk of a company leaving the community or downsizing, their perceptions of the community, local government and its officials, and a variety of community-based challenges.
The BR&E program is an ongoing community-wide outreach program that PMEDC is committed to continuing. If we haven’t already connected with your company, please give us a call at 604-465-9481 or send us an email to book your interview.
