Connected with Business

Industry Commitment

The Town is firmly committed to creating the conditions that make Orangeville an attractive location for new and existing businesses to connect with the global market place. This was the rationale behind the Town’s purchase and subsequent support of a railway line to service the Orangeville Business Park, improving access for local industry, and the investment in land for a future post-secondary campus development.

Competitive Business Operating Costs

Orangeville’s blended tax rates for standard and large industrial operations are competitive when compared to a range of GTA communities. Orangeville also provides access to low-cost reliable power, and offers a full range of energy services and solutions to assist in optimizing local business operations. Orangeville Hydro is wholly owned by the town of Orangeville, and operates as a for-profit electric distribution utility, enabling the Town to control local hydro costs, which is particularly attractive for businesses and manufacturing operations concerned with escalating hydro costs.

Reliable Telecommunications Keep You Connected

Orangeville residents and businesses stay connected with a full suite of high-speed data transfer lines for their personal computing and business needs, including Fibre Optics, Cable, ISDN, T1, T3, Megalink, DSL, ADSL, SDSL and TLS, all provided by major telecommunications companies like Atria and Bell.

Support for Small Business and Entrepreneurs

The Orangeville and Area Small Business Enterprise Centre provides guidance, resources, support and information to new, emerging and existing small business owners, connecting new businesses to the community and facilitating business-to-business interaction.
