Richmond County to Remain in Cape Breton Regional Enterprise Network

Richmond County will remain part of the Cape Breton Regional Enterprise Network.

Last night during Richmond Municipal Council’s committee-of-the-whole meeting in Arichat, district 4 councillor Gilbert Boucher made a motion for the municipality to remain a part of the REN until March 31, 2021 which was unanimously approved.

The vote came after a presentation from Cape Breton Partnership president and CEO Carla Arsenault who noted they are currently reviewing applications for Richmond County’s vacant economic development officer position.

Arsenault, a native of Richmond County, concluded her presentation by imploring council to continue their financial support of the REN, remarking that the relationship is important in helping the municipality move forward.
