KENORA – The Ontario government is providing more than $1.4 million through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) to three projects in Kenora. These community investments will help boost economic growth, improve quality of life and build strong, healthy communities in Northwestern Ontario.

"Our government is improving community infrastructure and strengthening cultural ties to promote a high quality of life in Indigenous and northern communities," said Greg Rickford, Minister of Northern Development and Minister of Indigenous Affairs. "This investment supports economic development and provides tailored supports that encourage growth and prosperity."

Projects receiving NOHFC funding include:

  • $495,000 to Grand Treaty Council #3 to construct an all-season roundhouse lodge that will serve as a healing, training, ceremonial and event space to support the Gamikaan Bimaadiziwin healing centre located at Bug Lake.
  • $476,833 to Kenora Chiefs Advisory Inc. (KCA) to build a commercial kitchen, dining area, laundry room, bathrooms and showers for future youth camp, recreation programs and special events held at the KCA Youth and Family Wellness Camp.
  • $490,000 to the Kenora Nordic and Biathlon Club to build three kilometres of permanently lit trail to allow for safe night skiing.

The NOHFC promotes economic prosperity across Northern Ontario by providing financial assistance to projects—big and small, rural and urban—that stimulate growth, job creation and skills development.

Since June 2018, the NOHFC has invested more than $559 million in 4,748 projects in Northern Ontario, leveraging more than $1.82 billion in investment and creating or sustaining over 7,500 jobs.
