Downtown Brockville: An Ideal Home for Business
There are many things to think about when starting a business, and location is an
important thing to consider. Downtown Brockville is a smart choice for new business owners to
begin their journey because it offers them unique and valuable opportunity to grow. We are
settled in an attractive central location, there is support and resources available to our business
owners, and we are home to a thriving ecosystem of diverse businesses that draw people to
our historic Downtown!

Downtown Brockville is an ideal place to grow a business because of it being centrally
located between 4 major Canadian cities (Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa, and Montreal) and
several American cities (Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Burlington). Nestled on the beautiful
St. Lawrence River in the Thousand Islands region, Brockville is a hot spot for daytrips and for
vacationers looking to stay a while! Being a destination place brings people who are eager to
explore our Downtown and its businesses.

We Support our Businesses
Those looking to become Downtown business owners have plenty of resources and
support to take advantage of! Contact the local Leeds Grenville Small Business Enterprise
or the Thousand Islands Community Development Corporation to learn more about
what they can do to help you get started.
