NOHFC Projects in Algoma-Manitoulin


The Ontario government is providing more than $582,000 through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) for 22 job placement opportunities in Algoma–Manitoulin. This investment will help businesses expand operations and develop Northern Ontario’s workforce.

“Our government is helping businesses create real opportunities for diverse local talent
to gain essential skills and build careers right here in the North.” said Greg Rickford,
Minister of Northern Development. “Together with our northern partners, we are creating
highly skilled, good-paying jobs that will boost economic growth in Algoma–Manitoulin.”

Investments include:
• $35,000 for the Nimkii-Naabkawagan Family Crisis Shelter in Batchewana First Nation to hire a Crisis Support Worker to provide counselling and support integrated with traditional healing practices

• $35,000 for the Algoma Veterinary Clinic Professional Corporation to hire a
Veterinary Intern to increase operational capacity and provide specialized
veterinary services in the region

• $35,000 for the Corporation of the Town of Northeastern Manitoulin and the Islands to hire a Municipal Modernization Intern to develop new asset management, geographic information system (GIS) and route tracking software

• $21,528 for Split Rail Brewing Company Inc. to hire a Marketing and Sales Intern to develop and lead the company’s marketing plan, establish cross-sector partnerships and assist with sales and distribution

The Ontario government is supporting local internships through the NOHFC’s People
and Talent Program. The program supports a wide variety of internships, including skilled trades, and addresses the unique needs of other in-demand jobs. Program candidates include new entrants into the workforce, those transitioning to a new career, the unemployed and underemployed.

“Our government has removed barriers to participation so more businesses can provide
on-the-job career development, address skilled labour shortages and create more
opportunities for a broader range of interns, including more opportunities for Indigenous
youth,” said Minister Rickford.

The NOHFC promotes economic prosperity across Northern Ontario by providing financial assistance to projects—big and small, rural and urban—that stimulate growth, job creation and skills development. Since June 2018, the NOHFC has invested more than $608 million in 5,070 projects in Northern Ontario, leveraging more than $1.93 billion in investment and creating or sustaining over 8,100 jobs
