Local MP Robert Nault will be at 400 Scott St. tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. for a funding announcement regarding the Rainy River Future Development Corp.
Residents also are invited to attend.
“As far as I know, [the announcement] will be concerning the $250,000 of operational money for the RRFDC,” said local economic development officer Geoff Gillon.
“There will also be $50,000 for local initiatives that we can use to help community projects,” Gillon added.
The federally-funded RRFDC was established to encourage local investment and support the business community of Rainy River District.
Among its recent goals is to land a call centre for the area that would serve to diversify the job market and expand the local economy.
The funding announcement comes as no surprise to the RRFDC, which already has earmarked the funds in its annual budget, Gillon noted.
But the event was organized to give the public an opportunity to meet with Nault and discuss future RRFDC business developments with him.
