Cornwall Ontario – The Cornwall Chamber’s Commerce Court building on Second Street has welcomed two new agencies. The Counties Community Futures Development Corporation and the Business Development Bank of Canada, have joined with Heart of the City at the downtown site in making it their centre of operations.
The announcement was made jointly by CFDC Executive Director Lesley Lang and Chamber Executive Manager Lezlie Strasser.
“We are pleased to join with BDC, the Chamber and Heart of the City in a downtown location,” states Lang. “Being co-located with like minded organizations promotes more partnership initiatives and makes accessing business funding and support simpler for our clients.”
Executive Manager Strasser was also pleased that the CFDC and BDC has become part of its Commerce Court group. “Each of those organizations has a business focus, just like the Chamber of Commerce,” she notes. “Having this kind of business centre in downtown Cornwall is good for both our members and the business community as a whole.”
