Why Ontario East?

Lower Cost of Land

Our land costs are significantly lower than larger urban centres. The cost of serviced industrially zoned land ranges from $10,000 an acre to $100,000 an acre, averaging $30,000 an acre.

A Strong Supply Chain

Includes large multinational corporations, small and mid-size enterprises and innovative start-ups.

A Skilled and Dedicated Workforce

Custom training and workforce development programs are available.

Quality of Life

Short and stress-free commute times while experiencing the safety and charm of medium-sized cities and rural communities.

Normally, you’d have to drive into Kingston or Napanee to get baked goods, but I think people like the idea of supporting a local bakery. People are waking up to the fact that if you really want to nurture your community, you need to be involved in it and support the various initiatives that take place.
