Why Sackville is good for business
The master in the art of living makes little distinction between work and play…. He hardly knows which is which.
Central location to international markets
If your idea of success is blending business with pleasure for profitable results, come to Sackville.
We offer the ideal business location — access to lucrative markets, global shipping and the country’s top bilingual workforce, plus competitive operating costs.
The commute? A five-minute walk is the norm. Unless you live out of town. Which would then be a five-minute drive. No traffic jams and only two sets of lights. Feel that blood pressure going down already.
Parking? It’s free. And there’s lots of it. No parking garages, though. Pity.
Culture? Whether you want to work in it or just soak it up, Sackville is the culture capital of Canada. Seriously. We earned that distinction in 2008.
Freedom to create your business lifestyle
Shall it be board meetings on the boardwalk or conference calls from your iPhone while you wander the Tantramar Marsh? No need for business as usual here.
The landscape inspires, and so do the people. An edgy eclectic mix of entrepreneurs who are also musicians, mechanics, poets and potters.
Do you have a unique product or service to sell? Downtown, with its historic storefronts, attracts niche retailers with some of the finest offerings in the region.
Other businesses thrive here, too. Moneris Solutions, an international customer service centre with over 200 employees; distribution companies like Russel Metals; Sackville Memorial Hospital and Mount Allison University.
Benefit from regional economic growth
Over the last ten years, our region’s population has increased by 20,000; so has our active labour force and the number of jobs. Our workforce participation rate is high and our unemployment rate is low.
We’re green, clean and business-friendly.
