Ottawa gives money to Nunavut Economic Developers Association
$19,964 will be earmarked to help "attract, retain and expand foreign direct investment in Nunavut"
The Nunavut Economic Developers Association will get $19,964 from Ottawa to help “attract, retain and expand foreign direct investment in Nunavut.”
“Both the federal government and municipalities share the objective of bringing new investment to communities across Canada,” said Nunaut MP Leona Aglukkaq in an Oct. 17 news release.
“That is why we are proud to support activities by the Nunavut Economic Developers Association to attract investment. In these globally challenging times, we will continue to support initiatives that help bring jobs and prosperity to Nunavummiut.”
The money comes from the Invest Canada-Community Initiatives program to help communities, organizations and economic development agencies across Canada attract, retain and expand foreign direct investment.
