Support For Business Coming

Businesses in the Rainy River district will get some help with efforts to supply goods and services to the region's mining industry.

The Rainy River Future Development Corporation intends to hire an individual who will work with the businesses sector.

Consultant Tannis Drysdale says they're also planning a workshop next month.

The Corporation is giving support to New Gold's plans for a mine north of Barwick, but has asked the company provide incentives and assistance that encourages the use of area businesses.
