|Description & Services|
We are part of the Atlantic Association of Community Business Development Corporations (CBDCs), a network of autonomous, not-for-profit organization that work with all levels of government and private sector to meet the needs of small business.
CBDC Shelburne services Shelburne County, located on the southwest shore of Nova Scotia. Shelburne County consists of the Towns of Clarks Harbour, Lockeport, and Shelburne and the Municipalities of Barrington and Shelburne.
CBDC Shelburne opened its first office in Shelburne County in 1990 to provide small business support to residents in the transition from the traditional fishing industry to other business.
Today CBDC Shelburne operates a full-time office at Shelburne, part time offices at Barrington Passage and Lockeport, and offers outreach services providing financial and business advisory services to all residents of Shelburne County.
CBDC Shelburne partners with other economic development agencies with the aim of enhancing and increasing delivery of our services and promoting small business development in Shelburne County. We partner with Employment Nova Scotia Labour & Workforce Development, to provide income support incentives, and with Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, to support rural development and to foster new business startups and expansions.
Investment decisions are made at the local level by a volunteer board of directors who offer a diverse knowledge of our business environment, our people, and who believe strongly in their community.
