In the News: Fight Unemployment pilot project launches in Seaforth

From CLINTON NEWS RECORD – Aug. 12, 2020 – A pilot project designed to stimulate the economy and act as a catalyst for the revitalization of Huron County post-COVID has been launched in Seaforth.

Fight Unemployment was unveiled in Seaforth on Aug. 11, with the aspirations to combine training, consulting, retail solutions and community engagement campaigns to keep more money on main streets through encouraging residents to shop local.

Huron East economic development officer Jan Hawley has teamed up with veteran former Business Improvement Area executive Janette MacDonald and long-time Southwestern Ontario entrepreneur Greg Plante to launch the project.

“Our businesses will be presented with and be part of the big picture,” said Hawley. “And the development of one large unifying collaboration between the private and public sectors is expected to pay dividends for everyone. The pandemic has resulted in the frontline of a battle, but it’s a battle we can win together.”
