Thinking Partnerships, Thinking Regionally, Thinking long term
As a regional industry development organization, the communities of PARC recognize the importance of working together as a region to build capacity to encourage opportunities for business development.
Over recent years, PARC developed its approach of being investment ready, supported with marketing materials that support its “industry ready ~ family friendly” region. By engaging different sectors, jurisdictions and government partners, economies of scale are achieved, and larger pools of capital and technical expertise are accessed.
PARC recognizes the importance of accessing technology and has learned much from marketing information and from talking with industry stakeholders. The member municipalities are moving forward based on a strong knowledge foundation. The PARC communities capitalize by strategically leveraging local and regional assets to their greatest social, cultural, environmental and economic advantage to meet their long-term economic development goals.
PARC has already completed a number of projects to connect with industry stakeholders to market the cooperative spirit and locational advantages to build capacity for business development.
