Ministry of Northern Development and Mines - Vote 773

NORTHERN DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2202

This program helps build a more prosperous Northern Ontario and strong, vibrant northern communities. The ministry is leading the implementation of the government's Northern Prosperity Plan, a range of targeted initiatives aimed at stimulating growth, job creation and a better quality of life for Northern Ontario. It coordinates provincial economic development initiatives in the North with the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund, Grow Bonds and GO North as its pillars. The program supports strategic investments in infrastructure such as the Northern Highways Program, and markets Northern Ontario's strengths and opportunities to the world.

The program's network of Government Information Centres and area teams provide 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.
