Economic Development

The Economic Development Committee

The Municipality of Trent Lakes is committed to working with the business community to aid in developing economic strategies that will contribute to a positive environment for new businesses, expanding businesses, business relocations and investor tours.

Council passed By-law B2007-19, at their meeting on February 6, 2007 to establish an Economic Development and Business Retention and Expansion Advisory Committee. The Municipality then advertised in local newspapers for applications for the five voluntary citizen positions on the Committee.

The Buckhorn Market made CHEX TV Newswatch
NewsWatch at 6, CHEX TV, came out and did a story on the Buckhorn Market on July 16, 2007 at 6:00 p.m. Since that time the Market moved to the Buckhorn Community Centre where there is plenty of parking and more venders. Vendors at the Market contribute funds to the Buckhorn Regional Medical Centre goal. 

Please come out and visit the Market and support the Buckhorn Regional Medical Centre.

Interested Vendors please contact Mayor Janet Clarkson at 705-657-3315 if you are interested in having a space.

Our appreciation to Chex Television and Newswatch @ 6:00.
