Province Supporting Economic Development in Northern Ontario

Ontario's government is working for the people of Northern Ontario by supporting economic development in Dryden with an investment in Dryden's Community Improvement Plan.

Today, Greg Rickford, Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines, along with Peter Bethlenfalvy, President of the Treasury Board, announced more than $51,000 to help the City of Dryden develop a strategic and community improvement plan.

This will allow the city to outline its priority economic development projects, promote itself in new ways and identify marketing opportunities specific to the area.

"Our government is committed to investing in northern communities and working with them to support a dynamic and prosperous economy," said Minister Rickford. "By helping Dryden market itself and identify investment opportunities we are sending a strong signal that Northern Ontario is open for business, open for jobs and open for investment."

"Our government has taken bold action to create the right environment for economic growth and job creation in Northern Ontario," said Minister Bethlenfalvy. "This investment will help Dryden bolster its economy and create good-paying jobs for people across the region."
