Province sharing benefits of resource development

The Ontario government is providing $15 million annually to northern municipalities to help support infrastructure projects over the next five years. The new Northern Ontario Resource Development Support (NORDS) Fund will share the benefits of mining and forestry with municipalities and complement existing funding streams for building infrastructure.

"Our government is delivering on our commitment to share the benefits of resource development with northern municipalities," said Greg Rickford, Minister of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry.
