Haliburton County Community Co-operative:
The Haliburton County Community Co-operative (since 1997) is a unique model that provides support and infrastructure for a wide range of community-based initiatives. The HCCC mandate is to encourage, develop and support entrepreneurial initiatives that contribute to the social, cultural, environmental and economic well-being of Haliburton county and its residents. The Co-op drew out of the discussions of a diverse group of community members who came together to investigate how to create new wealth in the community that could be re-invested in initiatives that benefit the community. Sticks and Stones is one of 18 parts of the Haliburton County Community Cooperative.

"Prior to our space in the incubator, we had to meet in random office spaces and people's homes. This infomral arrangement did not create a very dynamic or productive work envrionment. Being in the Incubator, which is bright, modern and open, allos us to be more productive, professional and able to visualize growth of our company." - Tammy Rea, Sticks and Stones Productions
