Region looking for home-based businesses and farms

Businesses and farms can participate by completing the Business Count online at, which will be open until Aug. 25.

Data collected through the Business Count will be used for municipal planning and analysis purposes and to update regional and municipal business directories. Businesses are encouraged to utilize the online directory to “look local first” when seeking out new suppliers.
