Learn the fundamentals of BR+E on September 19, 2019 in Blyth, Ontario

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs’ (OMAFRA) Business Retention and Expansion program (BR+E) is a structured, four-stage approach focused on ensuring that local businesses in rural communities survive and thrive.

When communities take on a BR+E project, they take meaningful steps towards retaining and expanding businesses by getting a clear understanding of issues facing local businesses and then capitalizing on opportunities.

As part of the program, OMAFRA offers comprehensive BR+E training to:

  • individuals who are interested in managing or coordinating a community level Business Retention and Expansion (BR+E) project.
  • economic development professionals who will be involved in the implementation of a BR+E project.

On September 19th, Huron County will host a BR+E training session in Blyth, Ontario. The session will focus on the first two stages of the BR+E process. Participants will get an opportunity to engage with OMAFRA staff and peers from other communities on various elements of the BR+E process.
