For immediate release

 The Timmins Economic Development Corporation (TEDC), the Business Enterprise Centre and the Productivity and Innovation Centre (PIC) are highlighting businesses in the region.

In a series of testimonial videos, the three organizations are sharing positive updates from businesses who have received their support. “These videos are a testament to the growth and diversity of the business community in Timmins,” said Brenda Camirand, Director of Business Development and Retention at the TEDC, “they range from mining supply to non-profit, to food, and media services” she added.

“Working collaboratively, the TEDC, the Business Enterprise Centre and the Productivity and Innovation Centre serve important roles in generating new business opportunities, and supporting expansion and development,” said Fred Gibbons, Chairman of the TEDC Board, “we’re looking forward to sharing testimonials from clients who have benefited from these services,” he added.

These are the first ten videos in a series of 20 that Casa di Media Productions created. Participants in the videos can also share them across their networks for additional exposure of their business. The videos can be found on the TEDC and the Business Enterprise  Centre Facebook pages.
