“I am very pleased that the Town of Vermilion has been recognized provincially for our marketing initiatives supporting economic development. Our marketing is designed to increase awareness of Vermilion as a vibrant, growing community, a community with ‘New Ideas for Living’ – open for business and investment.” said Community Economic Development Coordinator Mary Lee Prior. ” I believe smaller communities such as ourselves do not put enough value on the projects we are working on and we need to. These awards endorse the direction on economic development our Vermilion Council has chosen. To be recognized for our work by the EDA is a great honour.”
