The ability to work and live in a natural paradise with endless recreational opportunities is what brings many to the Bruce Peninsula.  That, and living life at a slower pace with many of the amenities you would find in larger urban centres makes for the best of both worlds.

The municipality is supportive of a strong and diversified business environment and works with partners to continually improve on the health of the local business economy.  

Programs, workshops and grants are offered in order to grow and develop business as well as attract new business to the area.  

Individuals looking to open, close, expand or relocate a business in the municipality should contact:
