An economic revolution is underway, and Ontario’s economy is relying more on its creative capital: services, information, technology and intellectual property. Businesses specific to these ‘creative’ industries are delivering considerable value to communities and regions across the Province in economic, artistic and social terms, while integrating digital and emerging technology to produce content related to entertainment and design. Creative industries of all kinds are among the fastest growing economic sectors in many cities today. Quality of place and lifestyle options are a competitive advantage for many of Ontario’s cities, and responsible for much of the success in attracting and retaining these creative workers and entrepreneurs. Communities with unique histories, and distinctive natural and cultural heritage features are becoming magnets for creative people. The result has been the steady growth of creative industries in small urban and rural locations across the Province, including Orangeville.
