For generations, the unfolding story of Placentia has been driven by opportunity. In early days, it was compelled by the international market for one core commodity: salt cod. Today’s opportunities are far broader and more diversified: from construction to resource development, industrial fabrication to metallurgical processing, the regional economy is in solid growth mode, with Placentia ideally positioned as its hub.
And Placentia is open for business. We know your business needs and work collaboratively with companies to ensure all the necessary infrastructure, services and supports are available to grow your business. Placentia understands that a strong business community benefits everyone. A stronger economy means more business opportunities. More business opportunities attract more people to live and work in Placentia. The net result is a better quality of life for our citizens.
So we make it our business to help business build and sustain our community.
Through our comprehensive strategic planning processes, Placentia has identified strategies and tactics that would further support our local business community development. The fact is that it has never been a better time to locate or start up a business in Placentia. There are countless opportunities arising every day, in all sectors of business and industry - transportation, retail, manufacturing, supply and distribution, gas and oil, technology and many more. We are open for business.
