Supporting Small Business in Sudbury

Ontario Government Strengthening Economy, Creating Jobs

Ontario is helping establish small businesses and strengthening the economy in Greater Sudbury.

With support from the province's Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation, two entrepreneurs are launching new businesses:

  • Vested Wellness, offering workplace-wellness services, is purchasing equipment to launch its home-based business in Sudbury.
  • Telling Tails, a retail pet supply and accessories store, is starting its business in Chelmsford.

Supporting small businesses is part of the government's economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontario's greatest strengths -- its people and strategic partnerships.

Quick Facts

  • Ontario is providing $7,510 to Vested Wellness and $6,960 to Telling Tails through the NOHFC.
  • Since 2003, the NOHFC has invested $136 million in 794 projects in Sudbury, creating or sustaining more than 2,400 jobs.
