New Entrepreneurial Fund Launched

A new fund to help small businesses set up or expand in the Rainy River district is being created in honour of a long-time businessman who died recently.

The Emes Entrepreneurial Fund is named after George Emes.

He was the long-time chair of the Rainy River Future Development Corporation and a member of the Fort Frances Downtown Business Improvement Association.

The fund will be managed by the Development Corporation and will seek support from senior levels of government as well.
