THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~ October 19, 2021 (LSNews) The Ontario government is providing more than $3.3 million to five local projects to promote and increase year-round sports tourism in the City of Thunder Bay. The funding will create jobs and strengthen the regional economy.
Northwestern Ontario is home to a dynamic, vibrant tourism sector that attracts tourists from across Canada and the United States,” said Greg Rickford, Minister of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry. “However, to keep our sports tourism sector competitive, it’s critical that we continue to support local businesses and communities. Today’s investment directly contributes to our northern tourism industry’s sustainability, prosperity and growth.”
Funding for the projects is being delivered through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC:)
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 $374 million in 3,713 projects in Northern Ontario, leveraging more than $1.3 billion in investment and creating or sustaining over 5,500 jobs.
“Our government is committed to supporting Ontario’s tourism industry, including sports tourism facilities such as these five projects in Thunder Bay that build a sense of community, attract visitors and boost regional employment,” said Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries. “These investments contribute to the province’s economic and social well-being, helping Ontario emerge from the pandemic as a global destination of choice for sport and recreation enthusiasts and tourists from around the world.”
