Roger Brooks Tourism Attraction Study (2009)
In July and August of 2009, a Regional Assessment of the Northumberland Shore, Nova Scotia was conducted, and the findings were presented in a two-hour workshop in late September. The assessment provides an unbiased overview of the region - how it is seen by a visitor. It includes a review of local marketing efforts, signage, attractions, critical mass, retail mix, ease of getting around, customer service, visitor amenities such as parking and public washrooms, overall appeal, and the community’s ability to attract overnight visitors. pdf Reports and Studies Roger Brooks Tourism Assessment 2009 (56.68 MB)
Antigonish Investment Attraction Study (2013)
The primary focus of this study is on the attraction of foreign direct investment (FDI) – new business investment and job creation in the Antigonish area by firms headquartered in foreign jurisdictions. EDP Consulting, in association with Market Research Associates (MRA), was retained by the Antigonish Regional Development Authority (ARDA) to undertake an investment attraction strategy study for the financial services and renewable energy and clean/green technologies sectors. These sectors were identified as potential investment attraction target sectors for the Antigonish area in a 2010 Investment Attraction Research Project undertaken for the ARDA. pdf Reports and Studies Antigonish Investment Attraction Study 2013 (1.75 MB)
