Two events took place in April: The Spring Clarence-Rockland Expo (April 25-27), which was a great opportunity for businesses to promote their products and services, attracted approximately 3 000 people.
A few days after, from April 30 to May 2, the Rural Economic Summit of Ontario had successful speakers discuss about our local economic development and this event allowed our City and the business community to be noticed. Clarence-Rockland wants to be known as the community where things happen and put emphasis on our City, our businesses, our infrastructures in order to attract tourism.
