Since 2012, the District of Ucluelet has implemented a number of initiatives identified in its economic development strategy, including a business retention and expansion program, and diversification into tourism and marine-related sectors. In 2017 Ucluelet updated its economic development strategy, which prioritized investment attraction by highlighting the community’s key economic attributes and opportunities.
This project will deliver materials to support investment attraction on the District of Ucluelet website, including an updated community profile, business opportunity guide, economic indicators, as well as a guide outlining the development approval process and other steps to starting a business in Ucluelet.
Project completion is forecasted for the end of 2019. Anticipated outcomes include attraction of new residential and commercial developers, support for local start-ups, and improved investment readiness for underserved markets in the community.
