NIPIGON – With support from Ontario’s Rural Economic Development Program, the Township will develop a strategy that effectively uses signs and an easy-to-identify brand to attract visitors from the nearby Trans Canada Highway. This will help the Township attract new businesses, as well as strengthen the existing business community.

“This project will assist the Township of Nipigon in developing the tools necessary to support and grow existing businesses as well as attract visitors and new

entrepreneurs. Thanks to the support of the provincial government, this strategy will be a positive step forward to strengthen our economic climate and focus on new

opportunities for tourism,” states Richard Harvey, Mayor of Nipigon.

“Through investments like this, the McGuinty government is helping to create jobs and new business opportunities for our families in rural communities. This project

will encourage growth and stability in the community and help boost tourism in northern Ontario,” shared Carol Mitchell, Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.

“This strategy builds upon and highlights the strengths of the beautiful Township of Nipigon, while creating new economic and business opportunities and positioning it

for growth. This project is another example of how the McGuinty government is providing communities with the tools they need to succeed and prosper,” shared Michael Gravelle, MPP for Thunder Bay-Superior North
