Welcome to the "New" Economic Development webpage!




The Township of Alnwick/Haldimand has initiated a strategic planning process to develop a five year Economic Development Strategy that will inform Council decision making and provide direction to staff in terms of future economic development initiatives that will support the Township’s economic base.

The Township of Alnwick/Haldimand has hired MDB Insight, a professional economic development research firm based out of the City of Kingston, to administer a Community Telephone Survey from February 1, 2016 through February 22, 2016. Local residents will be asked questions that will help to identify a vision for economic development and prioritize economic development directions. The results of this survey will inform the Economic Development Strategy.

The Community Telephone Survey will be administered via Computer-Assisted-Telephone Interviewing (CATI) methodology among 150 randomly selected residents of the Township of Alnwick/Haldimand. In order to maintain randomness and ensure a statistically valid sample, not everyone in the community will be contacted. It should also be noted that eligible respondents must be 18 years of age or older.

In effort to achieve highly accurate results, residents are highly encouraged to participate if selected; however, participation is completely voluntary. Residents who are contacted by MDB Insight and express that they do not wish to participate in the survey, will be placed on a “do not call” list.

The public is also encouraged to follow along the process by visiting the Township website’s council portal or directing any questions to Robin van de Moosdyk at or by phone 905-349-2822 Ext. 32. 

The Economic Development Strategy is expected to be completed by April 2018.
