The Growth Plan for Northern Ontario, 2011, is a 25-year plan that was released on March 4, 2011. The Plan guides provincial decision-making and investment now and in the future. 

The Growth Plan aims to strengthen the economy of the North by:

  • Diversifying the region's traditional resource-based industries
  • Stimulating new investment and entrepreneurship
  • Nurturing new and emerging sectors with high growth potential.

The Plan's policies are built upon six themes that each contribute to the region’s long-term sustainability and prosperity: Economy, People, Communities, Aboriginal Peoples, Infrastructure and Environment.
