April 8th, 2015 - 12:41pm
Timmins-James Baycontinues to show strong investments in economic development and infrastructure. Over the past fiscal year of 2013-2014, federal government departments, agencies, and crown corporations have invested at least 150 million dollars in Timmins James Bay.
MP Charlie Angus says Timmins-James Bay is a centre for economic development in Ontario. “It is good to see that we are getting strong federal investment in the region.”
Not all department, agencies, and crown corporations were able to track investment figures by constituency and so the real investment figure is likely higher than the 150-million dollars from the 2013-2014 budget year. Funding was spread across the riding. Some project examples are: Elk Lake Centre For Resource Education ($380,065), Business Development for Cochrane Airport ($532,500), Thornloe Cheese Inc ($138,286), Englehart Central Timiskaming District Strategic Plan (22,545), TEDC Northeast Innovation and Productivity centre (444,418), Kirkland Lake Commercial development (603,000), Economic Development for Black River-Matheson ($27,000), and Iroquois Falls equipment renovations and upgrades ($175,000),
Below are examples of some of the departmental spending figures over the past year.
