Overall economic development strategies such as workforce development, strategic alliances and partnerships, business recruitment, tourism development, and downtown revitalization can contribute to a healthy and growing central business district.
The tourist industry is also a major employer with five (5) marinas and home of the Ontario Marine Operators Association. The Town operates a Tourist Information Centre at the Historical Port of Penetanguishene with marina and launching ramp. The Town also has over 69 hectares (170 acres) of parkland, three ball fields, several playgrounds and kilometres of trails.
Economic development is essential for the future of the four municipalities that make up Huronia: Town of Penetanguishene, Town of Midland, Township of Tay, and Township of Tiny. Accordingly, the four mayors have initiated the creation of the Huronia Economic Alliance (HEA) in the pursuit of joint economic development efforts. More information can be found on the Huronia Economic Alliance website: www.investhuronia.ca.
