The Ontario East Advantage

Ontario East communities offer a variety of available properties for sale or lease including buildings and serviced land at costs significantly lower than larger urban centres. Current available properties are accessible at Ontario East ZoomProspector

Eastern Ontario communities offer skilled and dedicated workforces with custom training and workforce development programs available throughout the region. Ontario East is actively engaged in supporting workforce development programs to support new and existing employers.

Our communities are located in close proximity to major markets in both Canada and the United States, serviced by modern multi-lane highways, access to rail services, several airports and deep water seaports on Lake Ontario. Ontario East is accessible to the United States by four non-congested border crossings to New York State.

Ontario East communities host a strong supply chain with companies ranging from large multinationals, SMEs (small to medium sized enterprises) and innovative start-ups.

With an exceptional quality of life, whether in our safe small to medium sized cities or rural communities within easy commute times, both within and externally to the region, Ontario East provides the environment for high quality, productive employees to support businesses of all types. 

The Ontario East Economic Development Commission provides a confidential advisory service, at no cost, to clients considering investing in the region.
