Mapping Our Road to Recovery is a four-part online discussion series being presented by the Institute of Southern Georgian Bay, Town of Collingwood, and most recent partners On the Bay Magazine/New Classical 102.9FM and the Municipality of Meaford.

The series was launched on May 6 and the two events held so far have included speakers from across the region and has attracted over 150 participants. The concept for this series resonates with many people as we see innovations developing, businesses retooling, new roles for philanthropy emerging, and recovery task forces being set up across the region.

On Wednesday, June 10, 4:30-6pm, Part 3: Strategic Investments – Municipal Collaboration for Recovery will feature speakers from the major sectors of business, nonprofit/charitable, government, and philanthropy. This session will explore what makes an investment strategic, what pools of capital can be considered for these investments, and how can we align objectives, pool resources, and accelerate municipal collaboration towards bringing ideas to life that can build a more resilient and sustainable future.

Participants will receive a Zoom link to join in the confirmation email sent after registration, and again 48 hours and 24 hours before the event.

  • Strategic Investments and Access to Capital: Marilyn Struthers: long-time resident of Grey & Bruce, who works with emerging practices in the social sector
  • Business Sector: Tara Hunt, Owner, Anytime Fitness, Collingwood/Midland and Angel Investor
