Economic Development

In 2012, the Chris Lowe Group has prepared an Economic Development plan for Argyle. As part of our goal to Influence the creation of jobs in Argyle, we successfully partnered with ACOA to fund the attached report.

Council has approved this plan, and has asked staff to engage our business community to determine an action plan and to prioritize the recommendations in this plan, that are summarized as follows:

  • Focus on improving and developing Exit 33 (Tusket) that encourages business growth in that location.
  • Support an outbound mission benefitting local fishing industries, with the objective to learn about adding value to our existing fishing product.
  • Develop a relationship management database for continued contact with key investment people in and outside of Argyle.
  • Work to support our unique tourism market in the region (niche market, bed and breakfasts) and promote Acadian product as uniquely ours.
  • Identification of the Airport as a regional asset, with potential for growth in Aerospace.
  • Consideration for a center of excellence in the region, potentially focused on renewable energy in partnership with the Universite Sainte Anne.
