Competitive Advantage


Hawkesbury has low real estate costs and unlike most municipalities in Ontario, no development charges.

The Province of Ontario as a whole is a competitive marketplace, with corporate tax rates significantly lower than many U.S. states such as California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

In fact, KPMG's comprehensive 2008 Competitive Alternatives study of international business costs confirmed once again that Ontario business costs are among the most competitive of the G7 countries.

As part of Eastern Ontario, the Town of Hawkesbury has access to many funding programs and incentives that are specific to our region. These programs are wide ranging and come from both levels of senior government as well as agencies and most of these programs are tied to job retention and/or creation. We would be happy to provide you with a tailored assessment of your company in order to recommend eligible funding programs.
