Welcome to the heart of the Ottawa Valley and the largest regional centre between Ottawa and North Bay in Eastern Ontario. Pembroke is open for business! In recent years, its superb location, low cost of living and available skilled workforce has attracted new industry to the city and prompted the expansion of others.
An encouraging economic development strategy and a formal Business Retention and Expansion program serve to welcome new companies to the area. The management staff at Pembroke City Hall will help to expedite any of your queries, and ensure that business needs are met promptly. Whether it’s help starting a new venture or expansion plans for an established business, you’re just one call away from all the information you need.
Formed in March, 2015, the Pembroke Economic Development Advisory Committee (PEDAC) provides input to the Planning and Development Committee of Council on matters pertaining to business attraction and retention. Members meet on a regular basis with City managers to receive reports and studies, and to provide advice on matters that may impact the economic climate of Pembroke. Their role is fully outlined in the Terms of Reference that were established to guide their decision making processes.
In March 2017 the City of Pembroke announced that we would be undertaking a Business Retention and Expansion Survey to better understand the concerns and opportunities for our businesses. The survey will be focusing on manufacturers and employers with over 15 employees. The survey will be done with support from the Pembroke Economic Development Advisory Committee. Should you wish to partake in the survey please contact Heather McConnell at 613-735-6821 ext. 1500 or firstname.lastname@example.org
