Let's Work Together

In Frontenac, there’s a growing group of local business owners who are committed to working together to support each other and build up the region. They are known as Frontenac Ambassadors.

Frontenac Ambassadors know that they can achieve so much more if they work together. The Frontenac Ambassador program is the headquarters for business collaboration in Frontenac. It’s a community where grassroots initiatives arise, grow and thrive.

Ambassadors come from all types of industries, and represent all sizes of business—everything from side hustles to dynamic million dollar operations. They’re all different and they’re all doing business in Frontenac.

And that means they share more than just geography. Frontenac Ambassadors personify a fierce entrepreneurial spirit, a dedication to doing right by their customers, and a commitment to improving this place we call home.


The Network & Benefits

The Frontenac Ambassador Network is free to join and there is no membership contract. We’ve been running the network since
2016 and it includes more than 170 members.

There Are a Few Things We Look for In New Ambassadors

  1. Your business needs to be in operation: The Frontenac Economic Development team can connect you to resources if you’re planning to launch a business and we will get you into the network once you’re up and running.
  2. Your business needs to be located in Frontenac: We love collaborating across borders when it benefits our stakeholders. If you’re outside of Frontenac, we can’t call you an Ambassador, but we’d still like to work together.
  3. Your business needs to be interested in working together: Our entire region really benefits when Ambassadors work together to create something that’s bigger than the sum of its parts.
