County of Renfrew Economic Development

Business Description

Economic Development is a major focus for the County of Renfrew. Members of our Economic Development, Tourism, and Planning divisions work in partnership to assist municipalities and individuals to help bring development proposals to life in the Renfrew County. There are many areas that are already “development ready”, and we strive to find the right place for you to set up. If it’s not available members of our team will assist you along the way as you seek to make your site appropriate.

Through the Planning Process, the planning team is dedicated to working with applicants and the host municipality to ensure that applications are set and ready to be developed. We are here to assist and navigate the process each step of the way.

Our area is an excellent region to develop in the tourism, agriculture, wood industry, manufacturing, health sciences and nuclear technology sectors. All are key areas of our focus. We also directly assist those who are looking to make a difference in their communities as entrepreneurs. Every business and every contact is important to us. We work diligently to ensure that your development proposal, business idea, or site selection process is reviewed with the utmost professionalism. From students with a passion to seasoned developers with a dream and a concept, our team will go to great lengths to assist you as you navigate the process to success.

County Forests and County Trails are an asset to all of us, and a direct link to both our valued wood industry and to our tourism opportunities. The County of Renfrew owns 53 separate forested areas of land called the Renfrew County Forest (RCF). The area covers over 6,500 hectares (16,000 acres). Our K&P Trail and Algonquin Trail/Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail provide untouched access to the beautiful landscapes of our area, as they weave through the entirety of the County. For more information on the use of our forests and trails, connect with the Forestry, Trails & Geographical Information System (GIS) Division.

The County of Renfrew maintains and operates several real estate holdings across the region. If you’re interested in leasing opportunities, we may have some available options for you to consider. Contact us today to learn more.
