The City of Timmins has agreed to give Science Timmins a loan of $50,000. Vice President of Science Timmins Lorraine Cantin says the organization needs the loan to cover some operational costs. Cantin says the organization will be receiving other funding in the new year that has been delayed and that’s why she asked for the loan. She believes the organization will receive the funding in the first few months of 2017 and will be able to pay the loan back by March.
