On May 20, 2016, the Sault Ste. Marie Economic Development Corporation (EDC) had the grand opening of its new business incubator, The Millworks Centre for Entrepreneurship. Supported financially by all three local levels of government, Millworks occupies its newly-constructed space at The Machine Shop.
The site at The Machine Shop will allow clients to work in a comfortable and collaborative environment.
The Millworks Centre will offer office space for clients — many of whom are startup companies seeking a stepping stone from being a home-based business to one leasing office space.
The location brings startups to the recently-redeveloped Canal District, on the edge of downtown.
