It’s Small Business Week in Canada, and Fednor – the federal government’s economic development agency for Northern Ontario – has announced more than $8-million in funding.
The region from Hearst to Earlton and Timmins to the James Bay Coast gets the biggest piece of that pie, at $1.2-million.
It’s being administered by Link North. Business development specialist Ross MacDonald calls it “project dollars” to help businesses and entrepreneurs through all stages of development.
“So to develop and test and commercialize their product or technology; help them to launch and scale up operations;” he outlines, “and even for existing businesses, help them to grow.”
MacDonald adds that Link North provides a number of different services.
“We provide business advisory services to help clients develop their business model and other things. We have a variety of workshops and other programming that we deliver.”
