The provincial government is doling out $1 million worth of grants to grow the forestry and fishery industries as well as economic development related to the Hudson Bay Railway in Northern Manitoba.

Up to $150,000 is going to OneNorth, a group of First Nations and other communities in Northern Manitoba and the Kivalliq region of Nunavut, to help it develop the capacity to actively pursue economic opportunities related to the rail line, which runs from The Pas to Churchill and is operated by the Arctic Gateway Group, which includes OneNorth.

“OneNorth is a unique partnership that will build and further leverage northern infrastructure,” said Ralph Eichler, Manitoba’s minister of Economic Development and Jobs, which is providing the grant in partnership with Indigenous and Northern Relations. “This funding will allow the group to continue seeking additional economic development opportunities in Northern Manitoba, helping strengthen Manitoba’s economy.”
