Bernia has received provincial and international awards for her innovative approach development in rural communities.
Her mandate is to provide support to food processing, manufacturing, logistics, and construction sectors, while implementing business retention and expansion strategies that create jobs.
Her success in mitigating economic barriers in rural Ontario led to an invitation to speak before the Standing Committee on General Government at the Ontario Legislature in support of Bill 11. The Attracting Investment and Creating Jobs Act of 2012 was subsequently passed to support the continuation and establishment of development funds in order to promote regional economic development in eastern and southwestern Ontario.
