The Elgin Business Resource Centre (EBRC) is a community-based, not-for-profit organization overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors who ably represents the population of Elgin County. It was originally founded as Elgin Community Futures Corporation which was subsequently changed to Elgin Community Futures Development Corporation.
The corporation was provincially incorporated in 1986; and is staffed by business professionals who encourage entrepreneurship and the pursuit of economic opportunities.
When the Elgin Business Resource Centre first opened it’s doors in 1986 the organization was known as the Elgin Local Employment Assistance and Development Corporation. Ten years later, the organization would evolve, merging with the Elgin Community Futures Committee to assist and encourage job creation through the creation of small business enterprises and community economic development throughout Elgin County. The organization later re-invented itself once more to become the Elgin Business Resource Centre.
