Economic Development

Bowden.  Aims.  High. 

We are Open for Business!

Bowden is a friendly, family oriented, rural community that combines small town living with big city access.

Our strategic aim is to expand and continue to develop the Town as an affordable and cost-effective economic hub within the region.

We are one of the region’s most affordable community.

Our vision is to:

  • generate economic prosperity via leveraging of our advantageous location close to the QE2 provincial highway and the regional trade corridor
  • create new housing plans that provide options for seniors, families, and young people 
  • revitalize downtown occupancy with mixed use retail and residential enterprises 
  • develop initiatives focusing on the renewal of infrastructure, community facilities and beautification 

We encourage entrepreneurs to start up, develop and expand their business within the Town.
