PDAC IMPORTANT SHOWCASE FOR THE NORTH


Charlie Angus is attending the Prospectors and Developers Convention in Toronto this week. He is meeting industry players and supporting the large team of North Ontario businesses who are drawing the attention of people from all over the world. Partly thanks to the work of FedNor, the Northern Ontario showcase is the single largest business presence at the convention. The showcase features manufacturing, exploration and First Nation opportunities from across the north.


Angus says there is a real buzz among delegates over what the north has to offer. "It's not very often that we are able to showcase our manufacturing and business expertise to so many players from the international scene. I want to thank FedNor for playing such a huge role in promoting these economic opportunities for our region.”


Angus has been pushing the new Liberal government to restore adequate levels of funding to FedNor following years of Conservative cuts. Angus has also been pushing the federal government to restore the mineral exploration tax credit and start providing leadership to get the ring of fire off the ground.


"The resource economy is a foundational piece for the North. We need the continuation of the tax credit and leadership on the ring of fire to start developing our next generation of mines. But, we also need FedNor to help our region with the boom-bust cycles of the resource economy. FedNor plays an essential role in building on our business potential to create new opportunities.”


Angus is at PDAC this week along with fellow MP Carole Hughes (Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing) to help promote the north.
