NORTHERN DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2202

This program helps build a more prosperous Northern Ontario and strong, vibrant northern communities. The ministry is co-leading the implementation of the government's Northern Growth Plan, as well as leading a range of targeted initiatives aimed at stimulating growth, job creation and a better quality of life for northerners. These include programs of the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation, the GO North Investor Program and initiatives like the Northwestern Ontario Economic Facilitator Report. The ministry coordinates provincial economic development initiatives in the North, 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 offices 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.
