Local Company Receives Economic Growth Funds

Web posted on September 12, 2017

Ontario is partnering with Pearle Hospitality to transform the Elora Mill into a year-round destination, creating 110 new jobs in Wellington County's tourism industry.

The Elora Mill was built in 1833 and operated as a gristmill until 1974.

With support from the Southwestern Ontario Development Fund, Pearle Hospitality will restore the North Shore area of the Elora Mill and convert five historic buildings into a hotel and conference facility. This will help the company expand its operations and create both construction and hospitality jobs for the region.

"We are proud of our long history in the hospitality business in Ontario and excited to add to it with this exciting new development. We are committed to creating the best tourist destinations in the province and, at the same time, supporting the local community in Elora." Aaron Ciancone, President, Pearle Hospitality.

Investing in regional economic development is part of our government's plan to create jobs, grow the economy and help people in their everyday lives.
