There are several organizations that support business in Cobourg.  They help new businesses plus existing ones who could use some help.

Cobourg Business Support

  • Venture 13 - a consolidation of multiple efforts to help startups
  • Economic Development  - Full time staff employed by the Town of Cobourg who will assist businesses with economic and demographic information, finding land and buildings, finding assistance programs and providing liaison with town planners.  Headed by Economic Development Manager Daniel van Kampen.  Access to their 2023 annual report here.
  • Downtown Business Improvement Area - Promotes the 250+ businesses located in the Downtown area. 
  • Cobourg Chamber of Commerce - now renamed as the Central Northumberland Chamber of Commerce. Provides advocacy, networking and group insurance.



Getting a new development through planning is slow - one source tells me that Cobourg is one of the worst and slowest places to get a new development approved. 

Development Dashboard

The dashboard is a very informative online tool that lists all available information. There‚Äôs a list of open applications, a pie-chart showing types, a box with Date/Time of Public Meetings & Open Houses and a map showing the location of the projects.

Access the Dashboard from this page on the Town's web site.

To navigate, scroll through the list of applications in the lower half, click the applications you are interested in, then click an open spce on the map.  The location of the selected application is now shown. If you click the icon at the project location, a box opens that lists all available information including available pdfs of reports.


To explore Cobourg's Business Opportunities, your first contact should be the Economic Development Department which is located at the Venture 13 building at 739 D'Arcy Street. Phone 905-372-5481
