NORTHERN DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2202

This program helps build a more prosperous Northern Ontario and strong, vibrant northern communities. The ministry is the lead in developing and coordinating provincial economic development initiatives in the North with the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund as its cornerstone. Ministry efforts focus on job creation, strategic investments in infrastructure such as the Northern Highways Program, developing diversified local economies, and creating opportunities for youth. The program also helps northern business and industry compete globally, and markets Northern Ontario's strengths and opportunities to the world. The program's network of Government Information Centres and area teams provides northerners with access to government programs and services. Through this network, coordinated policy and planning activities, and Northern Development Councils, this program also ensures northerners have a say in the government programs and services that affect them.
