Those interested in setting up a business in our community can benefit from the Nord-Aski Regional Economic Development Corporation which helps entrepreneurs develop business plans, provides technical advice, business loans, business counselling, and much more. The Hornepayne Economic Development Corporation may also be of help to someone looking to settle here and start a business. In addition, the Northeast Superior Forest Community is a regional board made up of municipal representatives from the communities of Hornepayne, White River, Manitouwadge, Dubreuilville, Wawa, and Chapleau with focus on further developing the forest industry, non-forest timber products and creating sustainable employment in the region.
In addition to the NSFC, there is a Regional Mayor’s Group involving the same 6 communities; by banding together, the communities have a stronger voice when lobbying for services and financial aid for the region. The common goals of developing and attracting new businesses and residents to the area unite the communities.
