Over the last year GEDC has been approached by several interested parties looking for information on the Agriculture Sector and possibilities in the Greenstone area. As a result we approached Ms. Kendal Donahue, Ontario Agriculture Development Advisor, Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Thunder Bay, to do a presentation at our 2018 AGM.  The presentation discussed the steps that stakeholders can take to gain further insight on this sector and spoke about other projects in the North.  Stay tuned for updates!

Below are links to her presentation, Agriculture Economic Development Guide and Northern Ontario Agri-Food Strategy:
