North Bay is one of several Ontario cities being promoted through the Toronto Business Development Centre’s (TBDC) “Move for More” campaign.
As a part of a provincial program, the centre is marketing destinations outside the Greater Toronto Area as the best places for immigrant entrepreneurs to start or buy a business.
The initiative is aiming to attract global talent and business investment to Ontario by helping at least 100 immigrant entrepreneurs identify business opportunities in the province along with a commitment to invest at least $200,000.
Starting this month, businesspeople in countries including Singapore, China, the UAE, and India began to see advertisements promoting immigration to Ontario as an opportunity for entrepreneurs.
Residents of several Ontario cities, including North Bay, will notice a variety of ads, highlighting the opportunity to sell their businesses to immigrant entrepreneurs when they’re ready to retire.
“This initiative will help communities throughout Ontario attract talent and business investment from economic immigration,” said Vikram Khurana, Chair of TBDC. “TBDC will leverage our international marketing experience to attract qualified entrepreneurs and help them select communities and business opportunities and create much-needed jobs and economic growth.”
