Northern Ontario has seen a lot of growth in its economy and businesses over the past 25 years and much of that can be linked back to FedNor investments.
In 1987, the federal government created an economic development initiative for the region to focus on economic disparities and unique regional challenges.
It was, and still is called the Federal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario, FedNor for short.
Since then FedNor has improved to include a number of initiatives and programs proving successful in job creation, economic growth and long term prosperity across the Northern Ontario region.
July marks the 25 year anniversary of the government agency.
It is currently led by Industry Minister Tony Clement.
