Office of Economic Development

White River's Economic Development team works to attract new businesses to our community and encourage the retention and expansion of existing businesses within our community.

If you are interested in setting up a new business or exploring investment opportunties, we will work closely with you to assist you with:

  • Business plan preparation;
  • Communication and marketing;
  • Grant and loan applications;
  • Research/feasibility studies;
  • Economic/social research; and
  • Project implementation.


Strategic Plan

Our Economic Development team worked with Problem Solution Resolution Partners on a 5-Year Strategic Plan to help make White River a more vibrant and active community. 

By identifying the strategic priorities that matter most to the community, the plan will help council to determine how resources will be invested and eventually improve the quality of life for citizens in our community.
