RE: Bruce County Planning and Economic Development Annual Update

Mayor McIver welcomed Jack Van Dorp and Paul McGrath from Bruce County to the meeting. Mr. Van Dorp proceeded to present the annual update and highlights from the 2019 year at Bruce County. 

Mr. Van Dorp discussed the following:

The public communication process has become more user-friendly and a new property notice format allows for a cleaner more accessible look

The Bruce GPS project has been successful

There are eight (8) guiding principles for the Bruce GPS project and the guiding principles can be used as infographics in reports to demonstrate if applications are aligned with the guiding principles

The “Plan the Bruce” project is scheduled for 2020 

Agriculture, Homes, Natural Legacy, Good Growth, Heritage, Connecting, Communities, and Business are all focuses of the project

Mr. McGrath addressed the following pertaining to economic development:

The Economic Strategic Plan uses a “macro approach” that supports collaboration between local leaders, municipalities and the county

Bruce County partnered with the Nuclear Innovation Institute (NII)

Fifty-nine (59) nuclear supplies are in the region which contributes to more people coming to Bruce County 

Through the Spruce the Bruce project, $100,000 in grants were given to businesses, such as the Lion’s Head Promotions Group

Collaborative Marketing Grants were also provided to initiatives like the Lion’s Head Community Videos that highlighted various places to stay, eat, shop and points of interest in the community

Bruce County has 55,000 followers on social media which contributes to community engagement 

The Summer Company initiative provided $12,000 in grants to students, one being DroneFX out of Lion’s Head

The International Women’s Day event had over 200 attendees

The Bruce County Tourism Innovation Lab is a highlight 

“Jobs in Bruce” is a program that pulls all job listings in Bruce County that are being posted online and displays them on a map, the program allows the County to determine what jobs are going unfulfilled

The Business Opportunities Map organizes vacant buildings and commercial opportunities and places them on a GIS mapping system

The County won several EDAC awards for digital marketing 

Main focuses for Lion’s Head and Tobermory are community development 

In regards to resident attraction, the goal has shifted to attracting individuals to live in Bruce County and start a business 

Mayor McIver asked Mr. McGrath how community development will be supported in Lion’s Head and Tobermory. Mr. McGrath indicated that they will be ensuring that programs are available, like Spruce the Bruce. 

Councillor Myles questioned what the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula (MNBP) can do to support economic development in 2020. Mr. McGrath informed that the Business Opportunities Map is something that can be brought to MNBP, but a staff member would be required to update content. He recommended that MNBP direct any entrepreneurs to the County as there are programs that can assist them with their new business.

Councillor Golden mentioned the issue of seasonality in Tobermory, where in the off-season services are not available. She wanted to make the County aware of this problem that is affecting year-round residents.

Councillor Myles noted that MNBP needs to continue to be an attractive and vibrant tourism destination, more meaningful experiences should be brought to the area, and local food options are important. She requested that the County provide any support they can to MNBP. 

Mayor McIver said that Bruce Nuclear is a huge economic driver in the County and the program for businesses to locate in the area has been a huge success. 

Mayor McIver thanked Messrs. Van Dorp and McGrath for the update on behalf of Bruce County.
