Ontario Helps Young Chiropractor Set Up Shop
New Clinic To Open In Parry Sound
SUDBURY - The McGuinty government is supporting youth entrepreneurship in the North by investing in the establishment of a new chiropractic service in Parry Sound, Northern Development and Mines Minister Rick Bartolucci announced today.
"Our government is proud to help young professionals transition from education to a career," said Bartolucci, who also chairs the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC). "By helping northern youth turn their work experience and schooling into new business opportunities we are helping build a strong future for the North."
The NOHFC is providing $25,000 through its Young Entrepreneur Program to establish Collins Chiropractic and Health Sciences. Funding will be used to purchase acupuncture, therapeutic ultrasound, electrotherapy, injury rehabilitation and aerobic equipment and chiropractic treatment beds. The clinic will provide modern sports injury and chiropractic services to the Parry Sound area.
This is just one more example of how, working together, Ontarians have achieved results in the North. Other examples include:
- Supporting consultations on approaches to stem out-migration of youth from the North, hosted by the Northern Development Councils
- Investing in new private sector job creation through the Northern Ontario Grow Bonds Business Loan Program
- Delivering the NOHFC's Northern Ontario Youth Internship and Co-op Program, which helps provide on-the-job training and experience to youth in the North.
These initiatives are part of the government's Northern Prosperity Plan. It has four pillars: Strengthening the North and its Communities; Listening to and Serving Northerners Better; Competing Globally; and Providing Opportunities for All.
