Event Details

John Norman, the dynamic young mayor of Bonavista, NL says the answer to the the question "Why do people decide to live where they live and visit where they visit" is directly tied to authenticity, connection to place and the marketing of community vitality. The Town of Bonavista, who long suffered from the same economic downtown as most of our rural communities in Atlantic Canada, is now leading the way in growth and millennial recruitment, with a thriving business sector and exploding tourism market.  "Housing prices across NL have fallen by 11% in the past 3 years; Bonavista has grown by 57%. Businesses elsewhere have closed their doors, Bonavista has seen 31 new businesses open in that same period."

Much of this growth can be directly attributed to Bonavista's entrepreneurial mayor, John Norman, and the two companies he and his partner created, Bonavista Creative and Bonavista Living, both of which invest in local properties and use a "Place Capital" model that has turned Bonavista into the fastest growing real-estate development zone in NL and resulted in it becoming known as a mecca for millennials.  Come to hear more about how John's story might apply to your community!

This event is co-sponsored by the Co-operative Enterprise Council of NB, the Town of Sackville, and the Greater Dorchester Moving Forward Co-operative
