Hamilton is still open for business

In these extraordinary times, the Hamilton Economic Development Office wants you know that we are still fully functioning, still available by phone, email or video conferencing and are still focused on business continuity. 

This includes services focused on small business (Hamilton Business Centre), downtown and business improvement areas, business retention and attraction and foreign direct investment.   

Although the COVID-19 situation remains dynamic and ever changing, know that our commitment to timely service to our business community will not waiver.  Please continue to check the Hamilton COVID Concierge at for all the latest information and stay connected with us via our Social channels- Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. 

We thank you for your continued investment in Hamilton and continue to work hard to ensure business continuity across our community.
