Here is our AGENDA:

Wednesday, September 11

7:00PM – 10:00PM | REN Welcome Networking Reception – Downtown Truro’s Civic Square

Set in the beautifully revitalized downtown Truro Civic Square, delegates have an opportunity to catch up with their REN network (businesses, municipalities, First Nations, service providers and provincial governments), and enjoy appetizers and tours of the newly renovated Colchester East Hants Public Library. The reception is business casual and will be held in outdoor tents.

Thursday, September 12 | Holiday Inn Truro

7:30AM-8:30AM | Buffet Breakfast

8:30AM-8:45AM | Welcome, Agenda Review

9:00AM -10:30AM | REN Updates

While Regional Enterprise Networks address common themes and opportunities in rural Nova scotia, these 15-minute presentations will provide a good overview of the different projects and activities among the 6 RENs.

10:30AM-10:45AM | Nutrition Break

10:45AM-12:00PM | Panel: Immigration successes in business and communities

In this panel, moderated by Kelliann Dean, new CEO of the NS Office of Immigration, you will learn about the current state of immigration in Nova Scotia and hear directly from employers and a settlement organization who are using programs successfully to meet labour needs and build welcoming communities.

12:00PM-1:00PM | Lunch

1:00PM-3:00PM | Afternoon Discussion: Where Are New/Growing Businesses Coming from in NS?

This will be a facilitated discussion where partners can discuss and explore the nature of new businesses in Nova Scotia. Where are we seeing success? How do we collectively build a better ‘new business’ pipeline? How do we foster/encourage new businesses in rural NS?

Have you been to the Truro Farmers’ Market lately? Every Saturday 8am - 1pm (summer hours). 🍓🥦🥕🥒🥬🍅🍠🧄🥚🥨🥖🍪🥩🍗🍯
More and more vendors are setting up outside, in addition to online ordering pickup inside the building.
Starting July 22, you’ll be able to get your Market fix twice a week because online order pickups will shift to Wednesdays 2pm - 6pm. Regular, in-person market shopping will still occur each Saturday.
