Economic Development

Economic Development is a priority for the Township of Rideau Lakes. Job growth and local opportunities are a key focus. Our vision is an expanded business base including tourism and farming, while retaining rural character, culture and lifestyle. Our goal is a mix of locally appropriate commercial opportunities that leverage and grow our local resources and assets, with an economic landscape that supports living and working locally, youth retention, and skills and capital attraction and application.

The Economic Development Committee works to assess and generate better understanding of the economic development needs and opportunities, in order to foster a prosperous, growing and progressive community that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.
