Canton Economic Development Committee



 The Economic Development Committee works to ensure that there will be a professional and open level of communication, support and trust between our business community members and our town government. In addition we will support existing and new business leaders in defining the process of managing and/ or relocating their businesses in our town. These will ensure a vibrant business community which is essential to maintaining a financially balanced mix of tax revenue flow to the town. We will work to ensure that Canton maintains its preeminent position as a leading corporate headquarters site in Eastern Massachusetts.  In addition the EDC is responsible for interviewing applicants and making recommendations to the Board of Selectman in the TIF application process.
