RBC Royal Bank

The Timmins Economic Development Corporation and RBC Royal Bank have entered a three-year partnership to improve our clients' options and access to financing. Securing financing and knowing what business services are available are often barriers to entrepreneurs looking to start, grow or expand their businesses. This partnership is a strong step in reducing these barriers.

Ministry of Northern Development and Mines

The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, in partnership with local municipalities, operates Small Business Enterprise Centres in communities across Ontario. In Northern Ontario the offices are coordinated by the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines. 

Northern Ontario makes up about 90 per cent of Ontario and is bigger than most provinces. In this rugged and varied land, you'll find everything from towns and cities to farmland and forest to muskeg and rock. Only the most remote parts of the province are not linked by permanent roads or Internet service.

The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines serves this region and the province's minerals industry. It delivers provincial government programs and services in Northern Ontario. It also represents northern and mining interests at Queen's Park.

The Regional Economic Development Branch of the Ministry has a team of northern development professionals based in each of the North's six largest cities, as well as professional representatives in a number of smaller communities across the North. Team members work with northern communities, institutions and businesses to help them identify economic development opportunities in key economic sectors. Team members also help communities develop proposals and apply to government funding programs.  To learn more about MNDM locally, contact Louise Straatman at (705) 235-1658.
