Busi­ness op­por­tu­nity

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

A sur­vey of area em­ploy­ers is be­ing pro­moted as a means to help fos­ter pros­per­ity.

“This is an­other won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for busi­ness,” Anne Le­duc said at a re­cent Alexan­dria and District Cham­ber of Com­merce meet­ing. The fea­si­bil­ity study and ac­tion plan are de­signed to “en­sure the sus­tain­abil­ity of lo­cal en­ter­prises that are cru­cial to the eco­nomic wel­fare of our com­mu­ni­ties,” ac­cord­ing to the Glen­garry In­ter-Agency Group.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion is hop­ing that once the ten-week pro­ject is wrapped up, more gov­ern­ment fund­ing can be se­cured to en­sure the re­port “does not sit on the shelf,” said Mrs. Le­duc, a for­mer eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer in South Glen­garry and Hawkes­bury who is act­ing as a con­sul­tant for GIAG. The train­ing needs as­sess­ment will in­clude con­sul­ta­tions with em­ploy­ers and work­ers. The ob­jec­tives are to iden­tify gaps and op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­able em­ploy­ers to adapt to “to­day’s em­ploy­ment re­al­i­ties.”
