Smiths Falls releases new investor attraction document: “We are open for business.”

The Town of Smiths Falls is pleased to announce the release of a new and updated Investment Profile, an investment attraction piece that provides valuable information for prospective investors and business owners considering moving to Smiths Falls.

The Investment Profile has been produced by the town since 2018 and has been updated and refreshed for 2021 with new statistics and investment information, including demographic data, testimonials, and investment incentives. The document is a resource used by the Economic Development & Tourism department to distribute to interested investors.

“The Town of Smiths Falls is actively seeking investment in the business community and are ready to work with prospective business owners to help them first settle on Smiths Falls as their desired location, and second, navigate through the necessary permits,” said Jennifer Miller, Manager of Economic Development & Tourism. “This document is a valuable tool that relays to investors the benefits of doing business in Smiths Falls.”

The Investment Profile identifies the ways in which the town can offer assistance to investors, including facilitating connections with local business resources, providing guidance on location searches, and assistance with approval processes and investment incentives offered through the municipal Community Improvement Plan.

A series of testimonials from successful business owners and investors in Smiths Falls complement the document and offer first-hand experience with what it’s like to operate a business in the community. Testimonials include comments from Lisa MacLean (Le Boat), Angie and Dan Hoysted (Valley Custom Cutting), Chris Saumure (Guy Saumure & Sons), David Klein (Canopy Growth Corporation), Richard Timmons (Guildline Instruments), Dave Bland (JPB Fabrication Services), Rob Rodine (Optimum Health Chiropractic), and Natatia Gemmell (Functional Performance Fitness).

The Investment Profile will be available in printed format from the Economic Development & Tourism office and can also be downloaded from the website at: smithsfalls.ca/media/2021/01/InvestorProfile-2021-FINAL.pdf.
