Economic Development


The Mayor and Council of the Town of Kearney encourage developers, business owners, and entrepreneurs to consider Kearney in their growth and development plans. We welcome groups and individuals to share their growth, goals, and development plans with Council.


On January 25th, 2019, the Corporation of the Town of  Kearney adopted the Kearney Strategic Development Plan. Through the ideas and visions submitted by residents, cottagers, businesses, stakeholders, tourists, and municipal staff, the Community Economic Development Officer Jeremy Chan was able to develop a new Strategic Development Plan that will be used as a guideline for Government, residents, and stakeholders over the next six years.

Other Information

We have recently undergone a Business Retention and Expansion Project which will help guide future decisions on Economic and Community Development.

The District of Parry Sound has also released a Demographic Profile, highlighting the key attributes of the region. The Demographic Profile was derived from the 2011 Census data and provides insight and comparison between all municipalities within the Parry Sound and Almaguin Highlands area.
