Ontario government looks to greenhouses in the north

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Ontario government is providing $16,500 to help the town of Rainy River conduct a greenhouse feasibility study.

The study is expected to help identify the infrastructure required for a greenhouse facility, as well as assess the advantages of the greenhouse industry, such as increased variety and availability of produce, longer growing seasons, lower produce prices and reduced transportation costs.

The funding is being delivered through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corp., which provides financial assistance to projects that stimulate recovery, growth, job creation and skills development.
