NOMA Gets Underway in Fort Frances

Municipal reps from across northwestern Ontario get down to work in Fort Frances today for the start of the annual meeting of the Northwestern Ontario Municipal Association conference.

NOMA President and Kenora Mayor Dave Canfield says the theme this year deals with partnerships.

But Canfield says that theme could be overshadowed by the discussion over winter road maintenance and property assessment which have greatly impacted municipalities over the past year.

As many as 180 delegates are expected to attend, including the Grand Chief of Treaty Three and the
president of the Metis Nation of Ontario.
