DRYDEN COMMUNITY PROFILE 2009

1 Introduction Industry and business investment will find an ideal place to grow in Dryden. The solid economic base of the tourism, forestry and mining sectors provide a strong foundation for diverse business opportunities including innovative partnerships with our neighbouring First Nation communities. For businesses that serve the local region, the City is well connected to other cities, towns and communities by the Trans Canada Highway, CP Rail and the Dryden Regional Airport. For businesses serving a wider market, our new broadband wireless network provides fast, reliable connections to virtually anywhere in the world. Dryden offers ample opportunities and incentives to launch a new business or to relocate an existing one. Tax rates, registration fees and land costs are low and the resource base is rich. The City is partnering with the private sector in a major community revitalization initiative to entice new development and activity in the municipality. Location Serving as the regional service and transportation hub, situated in the centre of Canada, half-way between Thunder Bay, ON, and Winnipeg, MB, Dryden has much to offer the potential investor.

The federal and provincial tax rates shown in the tables apply to income earned by corporations other than Canadian controlled private corporations (CCPCs). A general corporation typically includes public companies and their subsidiaries, that are resident in Canada, and Canadian-resident private companies that are controlled by non-residents. Ontario’s 2009 budget proposes to decrease the general corporate income tax rate from 14% to 12%, effective July 1, 2010 and will continue to decrease this rate each July 1 thereafter until it reaches 10% on July 1, 2013. The rate will decrease as follows: to 11.5% in 2011, to 11% in 2012 and to 10% in 2013. The province’s 2009 budget also proposes to decrease the M&P income tax rate from 12% to 10%, effective July 1, 2010. 8 Ontario’s 2009 budget proposes to decrease the general corporate income tax rate from 14% to 12%, effective July 1, 2010 and will continue to decrease this rate each July 1, thereafter until it reaches 10% on July 1, 2013. The rate will decrease as follows: to 11.5% in 2011, to 11% in 2012 and to 10% in 2013. The province’s 2009 budget also proposes to decrease the small business income tax rate from 5.5% to 4.5% effective July 1, 2010. Ontario levies a surtax at a rate of 4.25% on CCPCs claiming the Ontario small business deduction in order to gradually reduce the benefit of the deduction where taxable income exceeds the small business income threshold. Based on the small business limit of $500,000 the phase-put range for the application of the surtax is between $500,000 and $1.5 million. The province’s 2009 budget proposes to eliminate this small business deduction surtax, effective July 1, 2010.
