The Blue Mountains has experienced significant growth and development over the past decade. As a true four-season destination, The Blue Mountains has an abundance of unique culinary, recreational, and cultural features.

The creation of an Economic Development Strategy for the Town of The Blue Mountains is important to ensure that our community grows in an economically viable and sustainable manner. The new five-year Economic Development Strategy is being developed in partnership with the Economic Development Advisory Committee and the Ontario Ministry of Agricultural Food and Rural Affairs. This strategy is expected to be published by summer 2020.
