Toolkit Wins Award for Economic Development

Bruce County | by Ken Hashizume  

The award is for the branding of Paisely as the "Artistic River Village".


Here is a toolkit that fixes up communities, it has also won an award for Bruce County.

Paisley's Spruce the Bruce Community Toolkit recently won an Award of Excellence for Physical Infrastructure and Redevelopment Initiatives in the Planning and Building Initiatives category from the Economic Developer's Council of Ontario at last Thursday's Annual President's Dinner in Toronto.

Bruce County Director of Planning and Development Kara Van Myall says the toolkit is built around a theme or a brand that puts them in a unique position compared to other communities.

She says the award they won was for the branding of Paisley as the "Artistic River Village".

The Spruce the Bruce Toolkit is actually a document that allows communities in Bruce County to receive funding for improvements.

Van Myall says it enables communities to position themselves for improvement.

She says this will allow them to attract visitors and businesses to their community.

Van Myall says the award is a testament that smaller municipalities can compete with larger urban centres.

She says sometimes you will you are not on the same stage at the provincial level.
