Think! Stratford

Stratford business owners enjoy many advantages, including operating in a growing town with an eye to the future. The town’s Think! Stratford campaign is one high-profile strategy designed to support and promote our business community and we invite local business owners to contact us to find out how to become involved.
Each month we feature a local business with an interesting story – check out our latest business profile and feel free to tell us your own Stratford business story by contacting [email protected]. With our Think! Stratford promotions and profiles, we aim to encourage our residents to think of Stratford as their home town, and a place that can meet all their business and recreational needs!

Why Stratford

The Town of Stratford is one of the fastest growing communities in PEI, and along with growth come opportunities for success. Stratford’s governance and administration teams are serious about delivering services according to local needs, and have taken a very progressive approach to researching and understanding the requirements of a developing community. The Town is committed to ensuring a healthy and safe environment for residents and businesses and we look forward to working along with our business community for mutual success.

Stratford Business Directory

Did you know that we have more than 140 listings in our Business Directory, and it’s growing every day. You can sort the information by category or search by name or service. And be sure to send us your listing if we have not collected it yet!

Getting Involved

The Stratford Business Group is a great place to begin – they hold regular meetings usually with a speaker or panel to help you develop your business skills. And don’t forget the importance of networking with your local business colleagues. Another important step in getting involved with our community is to join one of our many committees. Do you have additional ideas of how to get involved? We would love to hear them, contact us at [email protected]

Giving Back

Because we live in a small and active town, we find that local business owners are very much a part of the community. You will notice company names on hockey shirts, donated prizes in local lotteries, and many hours of volunteer time invested by staff from all business operations. There are many opportunities to contribute to our social fabric and heighten awareness of your business; contact the Town Office if you would like to find a local cause to support.

Social Media

An effective way to find out what’s going on as well as tell everyone about events you have planned, is to join in the social media chatter. Begin by following the Town on Facebook or Twitter and be sure to subscribe to our e-mail newsletter.
