31 Oct Innisfil Invests in Local Entrepreneurs
Innisfil’s economy needs a jump-start and Innisfil Invests In You is helping do just that. As a growing town, Innisfil wants to support local entrepreneurs in new and innovative ways, to grow local businesses and increase jobs for the community.
Property in the city of Toronto has exceeded the half a million dollar mark, and that’s just for a tiny downtown condo apartment. Imagine instead a home, with a garden. A place where you know your neighbors. Imagine a place where you can run your business, make it to your kid’s school concert and have dinner on the patio, all without breaking a sweat and zero commute.
Innisfil Invests In You is literally investing in the future of our town, our residents, and in our local economy, in hopes to keep more people closer to home during the work day, so they can better enjoy what Innisfil has to offer.

Innisfil Invests In Your Lifestyle!
According to Stats Canada, participation and employment rates are higher in Innisfil than Ontario for the overall population. Approximately 11,915 Innisfil residents commute to work out of town. That means that 82% of the local population is employed outside of Innisfil.
Our goal is to create more jobs within the town of Innisfil, and to reduce the number of residents who commute to Toronto for work. By focusing efforts into entrepreneurs, their businesses, and our residents, this goal can become a reality for our community.
