As a partnership between the provincial government and municipalities, the network will take a regional approach to economic development by creating an pdf economic strategy (2.67 MB) , coordinating efforts and focusing on helping businesses in the region grow.

A private-sector board of regional business leaders led the network and set its strategic direction. The board is appointed by a committee of municipal and provincial representatives.
