Chatham-Kent Economic Development Closes Office Doors to the Public

This is being done to protect staff, public, and to improve social isolation as recommended by CK Public Health. However, our staff are still available and are ready to help business.

“Please be advised that as of 4:30 pm this afternoon we are closing the Chatham office at 124 Thames Street until further notice. Staff are available to provide ongoing consultations and advice by phone, email, or computer going forward,” said Stuart McFadden, Director of Chatham-Kent Economic Development “It is important that the public understand that we are not closed, just temporarily conducting business and providing service in a different manner during these unprecedented times.”

During these challenging times, we are making every effort possible to provide businesses and entrepreneurs with timely and accurate information from trusted sources. Businesses are invited to visit to access COVID-19 Business Resources.

On the website, people will find business tools related to Public Health, agriculture, employment and workforce, financing and funding options, trade and export, and materials for small business.

Chatham-Kent Economic Development and the Small Business Centre are continuing to provide services via phone and by appointment. We are also adjusting many of our events and activities to use technology such as teleconferencing and webinar tools.

Please follow us on social media @CKEcDev, visit our website at, or call 519-351-7700. Chatham-Kent business and community: together we are strong!
