McGuinty Government Supports Establishment Of New Liskeard Communications Centre
NEW LISKEARD - The McGuinty government is helping to bring 300 new jobs to the Tri-Town area by investing $1,853,795 in refurbishing a facility that will house call centre operations.
Funding from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) was announced today by Timiskaming-Cochrane MPP and Natural Resources Minister David Ramsay, on behalf of Northern Development and Mines Minister and NOHFC Chair Rick Bartolucci.
"I am very pleased that the Heritage Fund could support this venture," said Ramsay. "It will provide new opportunities for employment, and in particular for young people who will be able to launch new careers right here at home."
NuComm International announced the establishment of its operations at the Tri-Town Northconnex Communications Centre in New Liskeard last month. Funding from the NOHFC will be used to renovate and retrofit a municipally owned building.
"Our government is committed to returning the NOHFC to a mandate of fostering private sector job creation in the North," said Bartolucci. "While we work to reorient the NOHFC, we will ensure the Fund stays in business. It is, and will remain, an important part of our four-year plan for positive change in the North."
