The City of Oshawa wants to hear from residents to help develop a 10-year Economic Development Strategy to drive investment in the city for the next decade.

Public feedback can also earn participants one of three $50 gift cards to a downtown restaurant or retailer.

The Oshawa Economic Development Strategy aims to provide a comprehensive community-focused plan that positions the city for success by growing and diversifying the local economy.

The strategy’s goal to provide flexibility as Oshawa’s economy diversifies further into knowledge-based sectors. Once developed, the strategy will be monitored for progress and adapted at the five-year strategy midway point with Council approval.

The public can participate by completing a feedback form online on Connect Oshawa (ConnectOshawa.ca/EconomicStrategy) or on paper at Service Oshawa at City Hall.
