Support main street businesses now to help preserve our vibrant communities.

We’re seeing momentum in entrepreneurial expression across the region, but especially in our downtowns. In the centre of our communities is where you’ll find makers’ and farmers’ markets, a huge variety of restaurants, coffee roasteries, gaming cafes and barber shops. You’ll also find co-working spaces, our regional tech innovation centre, our tech accelerator, and shared studio spaces. Bring your business to Durham Region’s downtowns.
