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.

    I’ve been making a more conscious effort to support local businesses. Whenever I buy something I first see if it can be purchased locally. It has been fun to see what our amazing local stores have to offer.
