Shortly after “Now or Never, An Urgent Call to Action for Nova Scotians” was released, a small group of local business people started meeting to talk about how, collectively, they could accomplish what none of us could do individually, what we could no longer ask or expect any government to do alone – make a significant, lasting difference to the economy of Cumberland County. Through several meetings with local business leaders, and encouragement from our local municipal government, our three-pillar strategy began to take shape, and the Cumberland Business Connector was born.

Forestry in Action.
In response to disruption in the forestry industry we, along with local partners, have started the Cumberland Forestry Advisory Committee. The purpose of this Committee, as well as it’s sub-committees, will be to identify short and long term needs of the industry and to find solutions.
