Whether you’re a startup entrepreneur or CEO of a multimillion-dollar enterprise, St. Lawrence County has the business resources you need to thrive in a rural location that’s less expensive and more relaxing to live.
It's The Little Things
The IDA can help with the “little things” that become overwhelming if you are making the move to a new location. Things that aren’t as easily provided in big city settings. Things like, how to enroll your kids in school, where to find childcare, where to grab a commercial flight, where to bring your family to learn how to ski… closest place to you for the best buffalo chicken wings or farm to table locations.
We’ll connect you with the tools and resources you need to thrive: expedited permitting, workforce training, real estate searches, export assistance, job creation incentive programs, market research, and more.
I’ve found St. Lawrence County a great place to do business. The people who live here are so supportive. And, there are lots of resources available and people willing to help – starting with the people at the SLCIDA.

Choose SLC for Your Business
Incentives shouldn’t be the main reason to locate just anywhere. When SLC is the right fit, incentives are available based on job creation & investment.
