As a part of FedNor’s Northern Ontario Development Program, close to $480,000 has been announced for agriculture industries in Northern Ontario. The funding will be used to establish a pavilion at this year’s Royal Agricultural Fair in Toronto. The fair is taking place November 4th to the 13th and will help showcase more than 50 Northern Ontario businesses to the 320,000 people that are expected to attend. Member of Parliament for Nipissing – Timiskaming Anthony Rota says a Northern Ontario Pavilion at the Royal Winter fair will help increase sales, create consumer awareness and grow operations for local businesses in the region.
