The Greater Sudbury Development Corporation has concluded formal consultations to develop a strategic action plan that will support lasting local economic recovery from the effects of COVID-19. Creation of the plan is a partnership with the City of Greater Sudbury through its Economic Development division.

The COVID-19 Economic Recovery Strategic Plan will guide decisions of the Greater Sudbury Development Corporation Board of Directors to better understand the needs of the business community, identify actions that will streamline business and economic recovery and prioritize key areas of focus.

Representatives of key economic sectors, independent businesses, the arts and professional associations were consulted over a three month period between August and October 2020. A draft Economic Recovery Strategic Plan will be prepared this fall for review by the Economic Recovery Committee of the GSDC. It will be presented to the GSDC Board of Directors and Greater Sudbury Council for consideration of endorsement later this year.

Financial business incentives and supports currently offered through federal, provincial and municipal governments are available at www.greatersudbury.ca/COVID. The City's Business Hotline remains open for questions and assistance at 705-690-9937.

    When businessman Vince Pollesel learned last month there was a dilemma locally about access to personal protective equipment before COVID-19 made its way to Canada, he knew he had to act.

    “I’ve got some friends in the health care area,” said Pollesel, dealer principal at Crosstown Chevrolet Buick Cadillac GMC Ltd. in New Sudbury. “They didn’t have enough protective equipment to deal with the pending crisis. They were all concerned.

    “I understood a number of them were going to secure personal protective equipment and pay for it. I was approached by a couple of them and asked if I could donate. I said ‘absolutely.’”

    That donation ended up being $10,000 to the Health Sciences North Foundation in early April to go toward the purchase of personal protective equipment for local front-line health care workers. Read more.
