The Minister of lnnovation, Science and Economic Development Canada announced in April 2017, a plan to encourage innovation and attract global investment and talent to every region of the country, including Northern Ontario.

While supporting the Innovation and Skills Plan, this strategy is aligned with a range of federal and provincial government priorities including supporting a strong middle class, sustainable infrastructure, jobs and innovation, export and investment.

Building on Collaborations

At its core, the PGSNO is intended to enhance and build on the ongoing federal and provincial programs and collaborations to address the needs of Northern Ontario's communities and its residents.

Collaboration, coordination and communication are key to the success of the PGSNO. As such, FedNor will continue to work with other government departments and stakeholders to respond to the various needs of the communities throughout the region as we collectively implement the Strategy.
