In January 2018, the Municipalities of Perry, Magnetawan and McMurrich/Monteith joined together and took the first step towards a regional economic development department for the Almaguin Highlands.

We are also happy to announce that the three municipalities have partnered with the Burk’s Falls and Area Community Economic Development (BACED) Committee and the Almaguin Highlands Chamber of Commerce to offer community and economic development services on a larger scale.

The goal of the committee is to build on this regional approach in the coming years to bring communities from across Almaguin Highlands together into a single multi-faceted department.  To learn more about this initiative, please read the Press Release dated December 19, 2017.

If you have any comments, suggestions or would like to learn more about Economic Development, please contact Dave Gray or visit the BACED website at www.baced.ca.
