We’re Asking Candidates to Say Yes to Economic Opportunity
The second pillar of the City of Opportunity platform is about making it easier to do business in Thunder Bay - for both the businesses already here and the new investment we hope to attract.
We’re asking our next Council to
make changes in policy that will reduce red tape, modernize planning and streamline processes. We believe this will lead to more opportunities for development and the creation of diverse neighbourhoods.
We're also asking for the development of service standards for public-facing City departments, to ensure accountability and a level playing field for everyone.
We need a Council that evaluates the long-term costs and benefits of their decisions. We're looking for our leadership to commit to long-term planning in the interest of a sustainable future for succeeding generations of residents, so that our children can do business in a thriving and healthy city.
If you agree that new economic opportunities are important to our city's future, you might be interested in the other recommendations in the City of Opportunity platform – it was designed with you in mind. Learn more at
