My Main Street Local Business Accelerator Program

The My Main Street Local Business Accelerator is a data-driven community economic development program focused on revitalizing main streets with a healthy retail mix, while providing residents, new entrepreneurs, and existing businesses with economic opportunities in their main street community.

The My Main Street Local Business Accelerator is currently supporting the revitalization of 65 main streets across southern Ontario.

Communities participating in the Local Business Accelerator program receive deep data insights and a dedicated My Main Street Ambassador who supports their main street by providing insight and support to their local businesses.
