NIPIGON – With an investment of $1 million from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), the Township of Nipigon is developing its Railway Street lookout tower and rest area to provide visitors a view of the community’s waterfront and the Nipigon River Bridge, which will be Ontario’s first cable- stay bridge on the provincial highway system. In addition, Nipigon will construct a lagoon boardwalk to provide public access to the water’s edge and an events park to host special events, concerts and festivals.

“By developing its scenic waterfront, Nipigon is building on its reputation for great fishing and magnificent natural landscapes and bringing tourists to the Superior North region. I am very pleased that the NOHFC is investing in this initiative that will help strengthen the area’s tourism sector and create new jobs for northerners,” stated Minister Michael Gravelle.

Investing in tourism infrastructure is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
