Anthony Rota announced funding for five projects this morning
The Federal Economic Development Agency for Northern Ontario (FedNor) is investing over $1.3 million to support Indigenous initiatives in Northeastern Ontario. Nipissing—Timiskaming MP Anthony Rota was on hand this morning for the announcement, given on behalf of Patty Hajdu, minister of Indigenous services—and the minister responsible for FedNor.
Technically, the funds come from three streams flowing within FedNor, the Northern Ontario Development Program, the Community Investment Initiative for Northern Ontario, and the Canada Community Revitalization Fund.
This morning’s announcement took place at Suswin Village—don’t get too excited, the grand opening is still a few months away—but the North Bay Indigenous Friendship Centre, which operates Suswin Village, opened the doors for the event.
