WELCOME TO RENFREW COUNTY

We are an Eastern Ontario location with direct access to North American markets. We have skilled labour with an excellent work-ethic and 600 hectares of adaptable and fully serviced industrial land readily available at rates well below the provincial average. For your business, this means lower-than-average construction, service, equipment and training costs. We also have a plan in place for the long-term availability of land and natural resources.


Renfrew County Enters Green & is Now Open for Business

In consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, the Government of Ontario is moving to a regional approach and maintaining the shutdown in the majority of the public health regions in Ontario, including the Stay-at-Home order and all existing public health and workplace safety measures. When it is safe to do so, the province will gradually transition each region from the shutdown measures to a revised and strengthened COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open (the "Framework").

Based on the improving local trends of key indicators, including lower transmission of COVID-19, improving hospital capacity, and available public health capacity to conduct rapid case and contact management, the following three regions will be moving back to the Framework at the Green-Prevent level on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 12:01 a.m. and will no longer be subject to the Stay-at-Home order:

  • Hastings Prince Edward Public Health;
  • Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Public Health; and
  • Renfrew County and District Health Unit.

All COVID-19 Safey & Protection Measures are to be adhered to, including practicing physical distancing of at least 2 metres and wearing masks when indoors outside of your own home and outside when phyisical distancing is not possible.
