Company Profile


Fort Erie's Peace Bridge processes $52 billion Canadian worth of trade yearly and is Canada's second busiest border crossing with the US. This geo-economic reality has propelled significant economic development for Fort Erie especially in the brokerage, manufacturing, commercial development, transportation and tourism industries. "In 2002, for example, "explains Jim Thibert, Fort Erie EDTC General Manager, "Fort Erie's commercial development rivalled that of municipalities six and seven times its size. This has to do with the availability of our developable lands, proximity to the US and extraordinary market reach to 9.5 million people within three hours. We are also unique in that we have a 125 year history with Western New York so American investment and a bi-national spirit is very much a part of the Fort Erie fabric."

Fort Erie's economic development strategy, therefore, promotes both the economic and natural assets of the Town while at the same time conveying the appeal of small town living with easy access to the big city amenities of Buffalo and Toronto. Although the Town has a base population of 30,000 persons, it enjoys 7,000 daily visitors to its gaming venues as well as 10,000 American seasonal residents who reside along its Lake Erie shores.
