Volunteers from the Brantford business community serve as members of the Economic Development, Tourism and Cultural Initiatives Advisory Committee. Together these leaders lend their experience and expertise to advise on our strategies and to help shape our projects and priorities.

The City of Brantford Economic Development Advisory Committee has a long history of providing support, guidance and commentary to the Mayor, Council and City staff on matters related to initiatives of the Economic Development department.  Our committee is comprised of volunteers who are active, interested members of the public, each holding valuable stakeholder views and positions.  We believe in Brantford and want to see it thrive.  It is our privilege to work collaboratively to facilitate a more business friendly Brantford that continues to prosper and become a destination for families to work, live and play.
