Ontario`s Minister of Infastructure Monte McNaughton has been working closely with Ontario’s Minister of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Ernie Hardeman, on the $500-million Rural and Northern stream of this program. Projects, including those in Parry Sound-Muskoka, are the first to be nominated under this stream.

“These projects are vital to ensuring rural communities across Ontario are open for business and open for jobs” said Minister Hardeman “they’re much more than concrete and steel. They connect rural businesses to the provincial economy.”

The projects are now awaiting approval from the Federal government.

These projects make up the fabric of our community,” said MPP Miller “They’re the things that matter – the roads and bridges that get us home at night.”
