The professional, scientific and technical services sector has established a strong foundation in the Town of Richmond Hill.
Richmond Hill has a specific strength in the computer system design subsector. Companies that range from small consulting firms to large multi-nationals call Richmond Hill home. Attracting these companies requires the availability of a high-skilled and educated workforce, access to prime business locations, proximity to other technology companies and support services, and of course opportunities to network, learn, develop and grow. Economic Development Staff ensure that Richmond Hill companies have access to municipal, regional and international events and support. Locally, the companies can take advantage of the Ontario Centres of Excellence, sector-specific associations and peer groups in the area. Companies within the professional, scientific and technical services sector benefit from the support of the Economic Development team. Staff use their knowledge and connections to support local businesses to help them reach their short and long term goals.
