Creative Communities Hub

The Creative Economy offers unparalleled opportunity for individuals and businesses eager to participate in a lucrative, stimulating and rewarding part of the labour market.  Eastern Ontario has been identified as boasting a particularly dense cluster of Creative Economy businesses and workers.

Ontario East comprises more than 200 communities offering concentrated access to markets, talent and innovative post-secondary institutions. Many businesses seek to relocate in a region that offers employees the quality of life found only in smaller cities and towns, beautiful natural features, sense of community and affordable living.

Ontario East is welcoming to entrepreneurs in the Creative Economy and has actively planned to provide a network throughout the region to support such entrepreneurs. From intra-regional business development and educational events to connections with leading think tanks and thinkers, you will be fully supported in your enterprise by a Creative Economy team committed to the region’s success.

Check out the communities that are actively engaged in Creative Economy development by clicking on the Introducing Creative Communities link, or explore this website to find out more about why Ontario East is “Canada’s Creative Corner”.
