The Honourable Greg Rickford, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources and Minister for the Federal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario (FedNor), announced today a new FedNor initiative designed to help Northern Ontario communities and First Nations attract, retain and support business investment, leading to economic growth, job creation and long-term prosperity.
The goal of the Community Investment Initiative for Northern Ontario (CIINO) is to help eligible municipalities and First Nations hire staff on a term basis to facilitate the identification of opportunities and the management of local economic development efforts and collaboration with regional partners to strengthen the economy.
“Our Government is proud to support the economic development goals of Northern Ontario’s First Nation and rural communities. FedNor’s new Community Investment Initiative for Northern Ontario will target those communities with limited economic development capacity and enable them to take advantage of business investment, job creation and regional collaboration opportunities equal to that of our larger centres.”
