District acknowledged for taking the pulse of the business community

The results are in, and Lake Country has won the Small Business Roundtable’s Open for Business Award.

The district has specifically been honoured for dedicating resources to take the pulse of its business community through analytics gathered from business walks and site visits.

“The Open for Business Awards are an important way to honour communities across our province that are invested in helping local small businesses grow,” said Coralee Oakes, small business minister.

The award was accepted by Mayor James Baker.

“We are always working to make Lake Country more business-friendly and efficient,” said Baker.

“This reinforces the positive changes that have been made to our operations, and encourages us to keep moving forward.”
