Business Retention & Expansion (BR+E) Initiative

The Business Retention and Expansion (BR+E) initiative provides insight and data into challenges faced by The County’s construction and manufacturing sectors. The BR+E is a standardized interview and survey process conducted by County staff with 60 business owners located in Prince Edward County.

BR+E programs are often conducted on a sector by sector basis, with updates to each sector taking place every few years. The process involves conducting confidential interviews with businesses to gather insights into their needs, challenges and opportunities for growth. It’s focused on connecting with a large portion of the manufacturing and construction sectors, and has provided industry data specific to Prince Edward County.
