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.
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.
