Business Resource Showcase

Espanola, Ontario/September 17, 2015

A Business Resource Showcase will be held to connect businesses with public organizations which provide services to support new and existing businesses.

“Businesses don’t always know where to look for support and often assume there is none when in fact, LaCloche is rich with public organizations which offer services to support new and existing businesses.” says Cheryl Kennelly, Community Economic Development Officer for the Town of Espanola.

The Town of Espanola joined forces with LAMBAC, the LaCloche Foothills Chamber of Commerce, PARO, and Contact North | Contact Nord to fill this gap identified by the business community. The group produced a map with directory which became the impetus for the Business Resource Showcase on Tuesday, September 29th at the Espanola Regional Recreation Complex.  This “come and go” Business Resource Showcase will bring business owners, managers and sole proprietors together with business support organizations.

“There is a plethora of support services available to our business communities; loans, grants, mentoring, networking, business directories, employment subsidies, training and recruitment support,” says Sylvie Thibault, Community Economic  Development Consultant for LAMBAC. 

“The Town of Espanola is proud to host this event to showcase service providers that can offer LaCloche businesses direction, information and support,” says Espanola business owner and Mayor, Ron Piche.
