We have a great location. Gore Bay is the centre of economic activity on western Manitoulin year-round, with lots of summer visitors coming by road and water. The population of the Island increases 400% each summer. Reasonably priced commercial space is available, the airport is within close proximity, there is excellent courier and trucking services, and access to worldwide e-commerce markets via fast and reliable internet make for practical reasons to have a business in Gore Bay.
We have a pro-business attitude. There’s no place anywhere on Manitoulin that offers a more business-friendly attitude than you’ll find in Gore Bay. Our town is experiencing something of a boom right now, and there’s room for more energetic, creative people to be part of it.
We have great facilities. Part of our economic development program includes massive revitalization of stores on Meredith Street and the waterfront. It’s happening right now. Come and see for yourself.
