Economic Development Strategy

Economic Development Strategy

The City of Merritt has updated its Economic Development Strategy.

The new Economic Development Strategy (Updated) reflects the current and desired future economic development for the community.  It provides a foundation for stakeholders to work collaboratively toward the same vision, enabling the City and community organizations to respond to funding opportunities as well as attract investment.

We have collected input from various industry sectors and thank everyone who participated for their contributions.

The City of Merritt gratefully acknowledges funding support from the Economic Trust of the Southern Interior.


The previous plan was adopted in 2014. Click here to download the 2014/2015 Economic Development Action Plan.
