Wendy and Darin Madore were in the midst of moving Shanti Yoga Retreat to an expanded location on Wolfe Island when the Frontenac Community Futures Development Corporation called with a business changing opportunity.

“The Frontenac CFDC, through the Access to Capital Program, provided us with financial support to renovate a portion of the main inn as well as construct a new yoga practice hall,” says Darin. The renovations enabled the Madores – already specializing in yoga weekends, retreats, and yoga massage – to open for business year round and expand into retail, creating several new jobs in the process.

“We were very pleased that we had the opportunity to move and expand our retreat business from Prince Edward County to the Frontenacs. We’re gratefull to the Fronenac CFDC for their support.”

The Frontenac CFDC is a non-profit organization funded by FedDev Ontario offering free business advice, workshops, and commercial financing to entrepreneurs and those looking to start a business in the Frontenacs.
