Posted Feb-09-2018

The City of Brockville accepted two awards on February 7th at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Centre in Toronto for their work on Canada’s First Railway Tunnel Revitalization Project. The awards ceremony, held by the Economic Developers Council of Ontario (EDCO) following their annual conference, recognize excellence in the field of Economic Development with awards for Promotion, Collaboration and Partnership, Planning and Building Initiatives, and Individual Leadership. The program is built to allow communities to have their economic development initiatives judged by industry leaders against their peers in communities of similar size.

The City of Brockville received EDCO Awards of Excellence for Local Collaboration and for Physical Infrastructure & Redevelopment Initiatives in the 10,000-50,000 population sub-category.

Award submissions were judged on the effects of the product on intended outcomes, innovation, originality, cost-effectiveness, demonstrated economic benefit to the community, creativity in executing the project, level of collaboration and partnership, and impact of the product on the community in generating jobs, spin-offs, and community pride. Of over 100 submissions, Brockville took home two of the award wins, and was nominated alongside three other winning projects for the Lieutenant-Governors’ Best of Show Award for outstanding effort in economic development.

The Brockville Railway Tunnel is scheduled to reopen on March 31st for the 2018 season.
