Grand Opening & Special Celebrations

Grand Opening & Special Celebrations

Is your business celebrating a special event, anniversary or grand opening?

The Office of Economic Development (OED) would like to assist in coordinating this activity by notifying local media, business associations, as well as municipal, provincial, and federal politicians on your behalf. We can help arrange a ribbon cutting ceremony where a member from Town Council can make a presentation to your business in front of the press in attendance. Your special event will also be highlighted on the community calendars available on both the Town and Economic Development websites.

To take advantage of this service, please complete the form below to get the process started. A staff member from the OED will follow up to confirm the proposed date/time and ensure the information submitted is accurate. That’s all there is to it!

In order to qualify for this service you must be a business operating in Bradford West Gwillimbury, celebrating a legitimate one day only event which may include: grand opening; grand relaunching; business anniversary (10 year, 20 year, 25 year); and/or special community event.  Please ensure you complete the form below and submit at least two weeks in advance of your event.
