Your Nanticoke



How will this benefit Haldimand’s community?

Your Nanticoke is a game-changing, community-centred vision of what is possible for Nanticoke and all of

Haldimand County. A vision of a community committed to protecting existing industries and driven by diverse career opportunities for future generations. A possibility that sees generations living in proximity to each other, so that families can work, live and play right here, in the community where they have deep roots and familial connections.

Respecting Foundations

Existing large-scale employers, such as Stelco, have played a foundational role in Haldimand’s growth. As a strong community partner, Empire recognizes the importance of creating new opportunities for future generations of Haldimand’s residents, while respecting and supporting existing industries in the County. This is Your Nanticoke’s driving principle.

This means that Haldimand can continue to maintain its traditions, its character and strong intergenerational ties. It means existing jobs will be protected while making sure that young families are not forced to choose high-paying opportunities elsewhere and can continue to remain close to their families.

Addressing The Lack of Infrastructure

For nearly half a century, the Nanticoke lands (bordered by Lake Erie to the South, Hwy 6 to the West, Nanticoke Creek to the East and Haldimand Road 3 running East-West through the property) have remained sterile from new employment uses, due to lack of infrastructure.

That is why we support the County’s unanimous decision to ask the Province of Ontario for a Minister’s Zoning Order (MZO). The MZO will finally open the door for discussion around the future of these lands that, for over 40 years, have been wrapped in “red tape”.

Minister’s Zoning Order

We welcome the opportunity to further explore Your Nanticoke through robust community outreach and mandatory public meetings following the Province’s approval of MZO, to further shape this vision: a vision that protects existing employers, that builds new infrastructure to support the region and provides active-living amenities for the entire community to enjoy. All at no additional cost to your family. A vision of what’s possible.
