Northern Ontario Business and Industry Feedback
Posted: Jun 04, 2020

 

 

 

I am writing on behalf of the Honourable Greg Rickford, Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines. Our Northern Development Division works directly on issues related to economic development in Northern Ontario. As a result, it is important to our Ministry that businesses and industries across Northern Ontario have a channel of communication to direct their concerns and questions about the ongoing economic impacts of COVID-19. Our Ministry is also interested in any initiatives being undertaken to best support Northern businesses and industries, and gaining insight on any challenges or opportunities as the province begins to reopen the economy and works towards recovery. Your organization’s and your members’ feedback will play a role in supporting the work of Ontario’s Jobs and Recovery Committee. More information about this Committee can be found here.

 

We have developed a feedback form (English and French) to better understand COVID-19-related challenges and opportunities with respect to Northern businesses and industries. Our office has attached two separate feedback forms; one of which is intended for industry associations and related institutions to complete, and the other, for your association to distribute to your business membership on behalf of our Ministry.

 

We are requesting that the survey be completed and returned using the email: northernstakeholdersurvey@ontario.ca no later than June 19, 2020. This will allow for your organization’s and your members’ feedback to be incorporated into the work of Ontario’s Jobs and Recovery Committee.

  

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions. We appreciate and value your feedback, and hope to maintain ongoing dialogue as the circumstances of COVID-19 evolve and unfold.
