OBIAA BIA Rural Investment and Expansion Project - This event has already occurred
OBIAA, with the support of the Province of Ontario, has conducted an extensive study to understand the impact of the pandemic on the remote working sector, specifically the impact of the urban to rural business shift and the opportunity of being 'community ready' for rural BIAs.
This webinar will summarize the findings of two surveys that involved nearly 1000 respondents. The survey respondents included urban business owners, rural BIA representatives and economic development staff.
This Webinar will present a '3-Step Tool Box' approach to decision-making in order to assist rural communities to become 'community-ready' for any potential urban to rural business shift opportunities.
The webinar will be streamed live via Hopin.com, a platform for online events to provide an engaging virtual experience.
