The local business community is receiving some support from the municipality.

On Friday, North Grenville announced $100,000 in funding over the next two years to both the Old Town Kemptville BIA, and the local Chamber of Commerce, to ensure they have the necessary staff to help support local businesses. 

Chair for the Chamber Karen Quigley says this funding allows both groups to build out programs that positively impact the community and the local economy. 

“The local businesses have gone through such a rollercoaster this past year and we are excited to be more engaged and devote our focus to helping them with several resources as we look to the future of not only COVID-19 recovery but through a strong relationship between the municipality, Chamber, and the BIA,” Quigley said.

The grant will allow both the Chamber and BIA to retain one full time Executive Director to implement a business support program. 

Each organization is responsible for the hiring of this individual. 

Board Chair with the BIA Meagan Cumming says they hope to build on initiatives that will bring more people to Old Town Kemptville. 

“We’re going to use this funding to support the downtown businesses, through these significant challenges COVID has put them through.” Cumming said. “And we’re really looking forward to collaborating with the municipality and CHamber to serve our business community.”

The municipality will not be involved in the selection or hiring process.
