The John R. Delaney Small Business and Youth Opportunity Centre will provide space for on- and off-reserve youth to participate in specialized programs and see the creation of small business within the facility.

The centre will feature a fitness room, a snack bar/lounge and 16 offices that will be shared by businesses, community organizations and youth entrepreneurship programs.

“While the new facility will be a resource for all local businesses, it is especially aimed at helping young people gain the know-how to start their own businesses in their own community,” said Northern Development and Mines Minister Michael Gravelle, who also chairs the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation.

The community expects almost $3 million in economic spin-offs over a 10-year period coming directly from the new project. The construction phase alone will create about 25 new jobs. Another 10 jobs are expected once the centre opens.
