Find Support in Brighton
"Without the support of grants and other opportunities provided by the EDC, Peak Form Medical Clinic and other small businesses in the greater Brighton community would not be able to flourish and continue to provide services through these difficult times. In addition, their support is instrumental in attracting new businesses to our community, which makes us all stronger."
