Help us refresh the Kawartha Lakes Economic Development Strategy

Kawartha Lakes – The Kawartha Lakes Economic Development Strategy is being refreshed to serve us for the next five years, until 2029. It will establish the municipalities economic vision, mission and objectives to support a vibrant and growing economy. It will serve as a guide for Council and staff on economic planning over the next five years.

We are looking your thoughts on how we can make the Kawartha Lakes economy better. Whether you live here, run a business, belong to a community group or just visit, please tell us what you think. Your ideas are key to making a successful strategy.

The strategy project team is using several ways to engage with community members, businesses and partners through:

  • Interviews
  • Online surveys
  • In-person workshops for partner groups

These methods of engagement will help us hear from all parts of our community. They'll give us a full picture of individual ideas and community-driven plans, which will shape our strategy.

“This will serve as a guiding framework for the Economic Development Division in the next five years,” commented Rebecca Mustard, Manager – Economic Development. “As we collaborate to enhance Kawartha Lakes, we hope to make it a place residents are proud to call home, where talent is attracted, businesses flourish and visitors come back."
