South Algonquin Business Alliance

Vision
The South Algonquin Business Alliance is dedicated to championing a thriving South Algonquin community where people can work, live and play. 


Mission

Our mission is to: 

  • Build the community through investment in ideas, industry and people;

  • Bring community members together to support economic development through an asset-based approach

  • Strengthen relationships and connecting with resources;

  • Advocate, communicating, educating and informing the community;

 

While we focus on tourism right now, we know that every business counts. 

 

We advance safe, inclusive, diverse and regenerative principles throughout our activities, in the tourism industry and beyond.

 

Over the last few years, SABA has facilitated more than $700,000 worth of accessibility improvements in our community, built pathways to essential partnerships, and undertaken strategic development of tourism messaging. We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished in this short time frame.

 

Our work relies heavily on the gift of time from our dedicated volunteers. We are actively looking for new members! If you’re a small business, an entrepreneur, or a person who is interested in supporting our initiatives, read more about our memberships and opportunities to get involved.
