Buy Local Campaign
The recommended lead is the Orillia and District Chamber of Commerce, partnering with the EDC and the Downtown Orillia Management Board.
Suggested approaches for addressing this priority area include hosting a trade show for local businesses; enhancing marketing materials with the use of testimonials; developing and distributing a catalogue listing services for local businesses; engaging the media to increase awareness of local businesses; and researching the best practices from other communities.
Progress has taken the form of preliminary, informal discussions between the EDC and the Chamber of Commerce. A work plan is to be completed.
