Spruce the Bruce

Spruce the Bruce builds vibrant communities through support of local businesses and municipalities. The program brings stakeholders together to create a vision for future growth and development and provides tools and grants to achieve that vision.

Bruce County is invested in local and potential residents, businesses, and communities. Spruce the Bruce provides communities with the resources to maintain and grow healthy commercial areas.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur looking for education and mentorship, an established business owner who wants to spruce up their storefront, or a community ready to join the business development movement, Bruce County's supportive Economic Development team is here to help.

Community Transformations

The Spruce the Bruce Story Map shows the transformation of our communities since 2009. This transformation started from a plan — Community Toolkit. Bruce County and community leaders have taken the tools from the plan, capitalized on Spruce the Bruce grants and brought their community vision to life. These successes are evident in the downtown streetscape beautification, business’s façade improvement, themed events and downtown activities, and branded marketing materials captured in the Story Map.

Each point on the map represents a Spruce the Bruce-supported project.
