We have ended our operations, effective February 29, 2016.
Over the last three years we made thousands of connections between skilled professionals who wanted to live in Grey-Bruce, and employers interested in their skills. We are very proud of this.
Since we started LiveGreyBruce.ca in 2012, the world changed. Other organizations began to fill the gap that we first saw. For example, the Magnet.today joint initiative between Ryerson University and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce has many of the same goals as LiveGreyBruce.ca. It received $1.2 million in funding in 2014. We started LiveGreyBruce.ca with $30,000 of funding and no fees for any participant. The results that we achieved with a tiny fraction of the funding that the Magnet project received were nothing short of amazing.
However, we reached the end of our funding and as a committee made a decision that it would not be viable for LiveGreyBruce.ca to continue under the present model.
As a result, we ended operations on February 29th, 2016.
