Business Retention & Expansion

Business Retention & Expansion

Stewart business community engages with the District of Stewart through The Business Retention and Expansion (BR+E) to identify how we can enhance the success of local businesses.

We would like to work with local businesses to identify issues that hinder business growth. Also, we are looking for collaboration with internal and external partners to determine how to resolve the issues raised and foster a positive business environment.
