Cornwall & The Counties Community Futures Development Corporation is pleased to announce that through the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF) provided by FedDev Ontario we have contracted a bilingual, temporary, full-time COVID-19 Business Relief Advisor to assist business owners throughout Akwesasne, Cornwall, and the United Counties of S.D. & G. Her role will be to help applicants navigate all the programs available for support through the hardships of COVID-19.

This new team member is Doreen Ashton Wagner, long-time North Glengarry-based entrepreneur who co-founded and operated Greenfield Services Inc. until 2016, when the company was sold to an employee.
