Kawartha Lakes Business Count

Kawartha Lakes Business Count

The Kawartha Lakes Business Count project is a collaborative project to support local economic development.

The project provides a snapshot of the Kawartha Lakes business community and to better understand and strengthen the local economy, as well as inform policies and programs. To do this, a team of surveyors visits local businesses in person, by phone, or email and gathers information.

The geographic focus of the survey is in the downtowns and industrial areas of Bobcaygeon, Coboconk and Norland, Fenelon Falls, Lindsay, Omemee, and Pontypool. Businesses outside of those areas are encouraged to participate online using the link below.

This project is led by the City of Kawartha Lakes in partnership with the Bobcaygeon & Area Chamber of Commerce, Coboconk, Norland & Area Chamber of Commerce, Fenelon Falls & District Chamber of Commerce, the Lindsay & District Chamber of Commerce, and the Lindsay Downtown BIA (LDBIA).
