McGuinty Government Creating Jobs, Strengthening Northern Economy

Ontario is growing the mining services sector while creating five jobs in the City of Greater Sudbury.

With support from the province's Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), Cast Resource Equipment Ltd. is developing a shotcrete sprayer that will be used to seal and reinforce mine shaft walls helping to protect the health and safety of underground workers.

Supporting a successful mining sector is part of the McGuinty government's Growth Plan for Northern Ontario. A strong northern economy creates local jobs and protects the services that mean the most to families - health care and education.
