The Bay of Quinte region is home to Canada’s largest air force base, which is one of our area’s highest employers. It’s also home to Canada’s newest wine region, with over 40 wineries and countless unique tourism experiences in Prince Edward County. Belleville is in the center for South Eastern Ontario for manufacturing, distribution, and transportation, and the area is an active and supportive hub for entrepreneurs in all industries.
The region is conveniently located on HWY 401 less than two hours to Toronto and three hours to Ottawa and Montreal with easy access to the Trans Canada Highway and the United States border.
(QEDC) is dedicated to the promotion of economic growth in its member municipalities, specifically the City of Belleville, the Municipality of Brighton and the City of Quinte West. The Mission of the QEDC is two-fold: 1) To encourage the growth and diversification of those industries and commercial businesses now established in the area; and 2) To market the Bay of Quinte Region in order to attract new industry-targeted firms to locate in the community. The QEDC is co-located with 8 other agencies in the Quinte Business Development Centre facility in the Pioneer building at Loyalist College.
