Regional Marketing Committee

The Ontario East Regional Marketing Committee (RMC) consists of Ontario East community members actively involved in investment attraction and foreign direct investment (FDI) promotion. All members participate in a variety of regional marketing programs and have the capacity and resources to accommodate investment in key employment sectors, including food & beverage, advanced manufacturing and logistics and transportation and more. Ontario East staff facilitate confidential investment enquiries and coordinate client calls for proposals, property and other information and provide a single point of contact for businesses seeking an Ontario East location.
