About Planning and Development
Land Use Planning
The Planning team works with Municipalities to be “development ready.” If you can’t find a spot that’s ready for your development, we can help guide you to the best place for your development, and through the planning approval process if changes are needed to accommodate your proposal. Don’t feel you have to navigate the process on your own. We know how it works and we are here to navigate it with you.
Inspire, Attract and Support. These are the words we live by when we work to improve the economy of Bruce County. How do we do this? With a focus on supporting entrepreneurs and growth where it matters: Tourism, Agriculture and Energy. The team at Bruce County is here to help you realize your dreams. Around here, loving what you do is not a cliché, it is our business.
At Bruce we start with the “who” not the “what” because attracting the right people will bring with it the right jobs. Bruce County has gone to great lengths to enhance its business development resources implemented through the Business to Bruce Program. The Business to Bruce program facilitates business foundations; marketing and promotion of business opportunities; and the necessary supports, outreach and education for business success.
Tourism, Agriculture and Energy are our strengths in Bruce County. Developing opportunity and capacity for innovation around these sectors is a key priority. Support for our strong tourism industry is delivered through our award winning Explore the Bruce and Spruce the Bruce programs. Taking these successes and applying them to agriculture and energy are our next steps. The future looks bright in Bruce with countless opportunities around cluster development.
