Communities are strengthened when decision-making and planning processes are informed by local, reliable and relevant data.  Niagara Connects is taking a new approach to amplify the impact of data found at and This month we began providing increased opportunities for people to access these rich sources of Niagara-focused data, information and knowledge, through sponsored social media sharing.

To make this happen, Niagara Connects is working with progressive Sector Sponsors such as BCM Insurance. BCMI is sponsoring the Economic Prosperity Living in Niagara sector. “This is a perfect fit for our company,” says BCM Insurance Chairman, Howard Augustine. “For the past 138 years, we have been a Niagara based company. Investing in our community and contributing to growth and prosperity is a big part of our philosophy. Shining a light on positive developments and new technologies within our region can change the conversation and that can lead to better outcomes for everyone. The Niagara Connects sponsorship opportunity is unique because we can connect our brand with real action.”

The Niagara Connects network of people shares a common commitment with our sponsors: building a stronger socio-economic future for Niagara’s people, families, and neighbourhoods.  Watch for upcoming opportunities to access and apply relevant, timely and reliable evidence within the Niagara context, via this enhanced social media-sharing approach.
