The County of Dufferin will facilitate a Business Retention and Expansion Study starting in January.
Economic Development Officer Karisa Downey says the study will focus on professional, scientific and technical businesses.
Orangeville and Shelburne will participate in the project and conduct business visits within their own limits.
Downey says the goal of the project is to assist in the potential expansion and retention of businesses within the professional, scientific and technical sectors.
Data will be used to create an action plan that will outline innovative projects to better the business climate in Dufferin.
