Mattawa Communities Promote Future Business Development

McGuinty Government Helping Strengthen Northern Economies

Communities in the Mattawa area are working together to attract new business and help strengthen the local economy.

With support from the Northern Communities Investment Readiness (NCIR) program, the Mattawa Bonfield Economic Development Corporation (MBEDC) is developing a regional profile that will help market the advantages of local communities to potential investors.

The investment is part of the government's five-year Open Ontario plan to create jobs and economic opportunities in Northern Ontario.
