Ontario Invests in Aboriginal Economic Development in Northeastern Ontario

Helping Aboriginal Communities Plan for Growth, New Opportunities

Ontario is supporting economic development opportunities for Aboriginal communities with funding of more than $1 million to support seven different projects in northeastern Ontario.

Through the Aboriginal Economic Development Fund (AEDF), the province is helping to create jobs, support new skills training opportunities and improve economic outcomes for Aboriginal people. The seven projects represent a range of opportunities aimed at encouraging economic diversification in northeastern Ontario, from providing training opportunities for Aboriginal people in mining to supporting Aboriginal communities as they develop economic plans and pursue commercial and industrial parks.

Supporting economic development for Aboriginal communities is part of the government’s plan to build Ontario up. The four-part plan includes investing in people’s talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
