February 6, 2015 – Gravenhurst, Ontario – Industry Canada/FedNor
The Honourable Tony Clement (Parry Sound—Muskoka), on behalf of the Honourable Greg Rickford, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources and Minister for the Federal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario (FedNor), announced today an investment to bolster business development and growth at the Muskoka Airport.
A FedNor investment of $902,000 will enable the District Municipality of Muskoka to complete infrastructure upgrades needed to develop new, fully-serviced industrial lots at the Muskoka Airport. Specifically, the funding will be used to develop seven acres of land for business occupancy by extending an existing roadway, as well as preparing the property to accommodate gas and hydro services. A commercial aircraft service company has committed to expanding its operations in the industrial area once the upgrades are complete.
Office of the Honourable Greg Rickford
