The Clarington multi-sector Business Retention & Expansion (BR+E) Project is an action-oriented community-based project using the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) BR+E tools to identify the business climate in the Municipality of Clarington. The project was executed under the leadership of the Clarington Board of Trade and several volunteers, with support provided by OMAFRA and the Municipality of Clarington. BR+E projects are designed to open a two-way channel of communication with local businesses. Through the business visitation process, BR+E teams connect with business owners in the community to identify issues, concerns, and opportunities. The goal of the BR+E program is to enhance the business environment by identifying and reducing challenges to economic growth and job retention.
