Ontario County Development


Welcome to the Ontario County Development website, a cooperative effort of the Ontario County Office of Economic Development (OCOED), the Ontario County Industrial Development Agency (OCIDA) and the Ontario County Economic Development Corporation (OCEDC).

We share a vision for Ontario County—a vision that is innovative and future-focused, one that offers the community and prospective newcomers the most robust high-tech infrastructure in New York State’s Finger Lakes region.

With a picturesque, welcoming environment, Ontario County offers a diversity of lifestyle choices that range from small city and suburban to village and rural, and we are dedicated to its safe, prosperous and long-range development.
