Barrie Business Ambassadors


A business-led, city-supported program focused on advancing economic growth in the greater Barrie area by harnessing local business champions.

Business Ambassador Program

The City of Barrie’s first Ideas in Motion interactive business event held on June 14, 2012 attracted over 200 of Barrie’s most creative business leaders from a cross section of Barrie’s economy. The event was focused on innovative thinking and idea design related to key economic development opportunities for Barrie. The purpose was to engage the business community, have them grapple with the challenges due to the current economic situation and then to work to co-design possible solutions. Drawn from a multitude of individual ideas and discussions, 5 key priorities were developed each with subsequent ideas and action plans.

One of the key priorities brought forward was the reestablishment of the Business Ambassador program: a business-led, city-supported program focused on advancing economic growth in the greater Barrie area by harnessing local business champions.
