West Grey partnership wins provincial economic development award

WEST GREY, ON—A partnership that includes West Grey has received an Award of Excellence in Community Economic Development from Community Futures Ontario.

Saugeen Connects is a partnership between the Saugeen Economic Development Corporation and the municipalities/towns of West Grey, Brockton, Hanover, Minto and the Township of Wellington North. It received the award for launching programs offering entrepreneurial opportunities to local youth, support for women entrepreneurs, and an innovative program that matches business owners interested in selling with potential new owners.

The award was given to the group at the Annual CF Ontario Conference in London on September 16, 2019.

“West Grey has always been proud of the partnerships it develops right across the region,” Mayor Christine Robinson said. “I understand the Saugeen Connects team faced some very impressive competition, which makes the honour of this award even more meaningful."
