See what some of our newcomers have to say about living and working in the Saugeen region

In March of 2017 the SEDC and 5 municipalities; Brockton, Hanover, Minto, Wellington North, and West Grey banded together in a partnership to create a project called “Saugeen Connects”. In May of 2021, Arran-Elderslie was added as an additional municipal partner, along with South Bruce in 2022. The mission was to collaborate and positively impact area economic growth, support youth retention and development, support growth and retention of businesses; and integrate efforts to leverage immigrant attraction to the area as residents, workers, entrepreneurs, business owners, operators, and investors.


Things are HIPP in Hanover with the launch of a new retention and attractions campaign. Hanover’s Innovative People Program (HIPP) is an initiative by Hanover’s Economic Development team, to drive the recruitment and retention of people, business and investment to the community. It infuses creativity, culture and business with the tools to accelerate Hanover to the next level. It encourages people to make Hanover their own, by highlighting the cultural layers, business resources and career value.
