Economic Development

If you are an entrepreneur looking to avoid the congestion of the big city and immerse yourself in the majestic hills of Carlow/Mayo, then we are the place for you.

The Township of Carlow/Mayo is a rural retreat with modern conveniences. Located at the centre of Canada’s “golden triangle” between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, we offer the Best of Both Worlds.

Cottages and campsites dot the shores of the Township's many clean lakes. Located entirely on the Canadian Shield, the landscape can often be rough and unpredictable, but at the same time it provides  scenic backdrops and vistas. The natural beauty of Carlow/Mayo is what most residents love about the area. The active lifestyles of residents, both permanent and seasonal, all enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities.

In partnership with the Hastings County Economic Development Office we can put you in touch with the right contacts, point you in the direction of funding and financing opportuntities, and also offer you free confidential business management coaching.
