Plans for Mining Infastructure
Representatives of the Northwestern Ontario Municipal Association are in Ottawa to meet with provincial leaders regarding issues and opportunities in the mining sector.
NOMA, along with other associations, is pushing the government to move forward with the initiative.
Vice President Dave Canfield says it would boost the local economy.
“Over the next 5-10 years, we could have about 10 mines in operation. They’re in the early stages now, so as long as the economy needs the metals, we can make this happen.”
NOMA is working with the province and first nations groups to make sure the issue gets addressed.
