Attracting Investment To Seine River First Nation

McGuinty Government Lays Foundations For Future Growth

Seine River First Nation is identifying investment opportunities that will create new jobs and grow the local economy.

With support from the Northern Communities Investment Readiness (NCIR) initiative, the community will complete an asset inventory, update its online community profile and host an investment readiness strategy workshop to help attract new businesses and create employment opportunities.

Strengthening local economies is part of the McGuinty government's plan to create good jobs for families in the face of global economic uncertainty.

Quick Facts

  • Since the program's inception in 2006, more than $2.8 million in NCIR funding has been approved for 281 economic development initiatives across the North.
  • Since October 2003, Ontario employment has increased by 502,000 net jobs, more than 68 per cent of which were full-time.
