McGuinty Government Supports Efforts To Expand Local Economy

Manitouwadge is strengthening its tourism sector and local economy by promoting investment in new public accommodations.

This project is being led by the Manitouwadge Economic Development Corporation, the Township of Manitouwadge and the Superior North Community Futures Development Corporation.
