Timmins seeks property owner involvement for OMAFRA funded project

TIMMINS, ON – The Timmins Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) in partnership with the Cochrane District Agri-Food Land Assembly Project and the Northeast Community Network (NeCN) is asking property owners in the City of Timmins to indicate their interest in leasing, renting, or selling their land for agricultural development. This project will give landowners access to agricultural investment inquires made to the municipality.

The NeCN is conducting a survey with the aim of creating an inventory of private land with agricultural potential in the area and to attract business and boost the local agricultural sector.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and landowner information is confidential. There is no cost to participate and landowners can remove their information from the database by request to the TEDC. The online survey is facilitated by the independent consulting firm Harry Cummings and Associates and funded by OMAFRA.
