The Power of Four

The Economic Development Corporation of North Simcoe (EDCNS) focuses on four key industries – Advanced Manufacturing, Agribusiness, Healthcare, and Tourism, — which we refer to as our “four pillars”. The opportunities and regional focus in these four pillars will reinforce provincial initiatives to drive growth and improve the environment for producing and offering goods and services from North Simcoe.

EDCNS advocates as “one voice” for all four municipalities. By collaborating and sharing information, knowledge, and partnerships, we can identify and create business cases for investments. The collaboration brings North Simcoe’s greater “critical mass” in its dealings – locally, with other levels of government, and with new business opportunities.


The four North Simcoe municipalities collaborate to promote and foster sustainable economic growth in North Simcoe.


By 2020, the four North Simcoe municipalities will be a growing, well-balanced, open community linked closely to Georgian Bay and economically founded upon:
• A world-class, four-season tourism experience
• An education-led innovative manufacturing base
• A strong health care and life sciences service cluster; and
• An efficient and growing agriculture and agri-business economy.
