Temiskaming Shores Region Creating New Opportunities

McGuinty Government Boosts Local Economy, Creates Jobs

Temiskaming Shores and two area First Nation communities are strengthening their economies through infrastructure improvements and planning activities, while creating new jobs. 

With support from the Province:

  • The City of Temiskaming Shores will extend the existing sewer line to Radley Hill Commercial Park and bring sewer services to businesses within Dymond Industrial Park. These two projects will help create 35 jobs.
  • The Taykwa Tagamou First Nation will complete a feasibility study that will assess economic development opportunities and determine long-term sustainable job creation.
  • The Temagami First Nation will complete the design of a new multi-use community building for council meetings, local gatherings and training sessions.

Partnering with communities in Northern Ontario is part of the McGuinty government's plan to create and support jobs for Ontario families and to strengthen local economies.
