Growing the Agri-Food Sector in Northern Ontario

The Growth Plan for Northern Ontario - an Overview

The Growth Plan for Northern Ontario (released in 2011) is a strategic framework that will guide decision-making and investment planning in Northern Ontario over 25 years (to 2036). The Plan focuses on ways to leverage economic, social and natural capital more strategically, and on approaches to attract a wider range of opportunities to the North. It is a plan to stimulate growth by creating a diversified northern economy, stronger communities, a healthy environment and a skilled, adaptive and innovative workforce.
