A new Regional Economic Development Agency is in the works

The Region could soon have a body to oversee economic development across the Northwest.  Thunder Bay City Council saw a presentation yesterday from Iain Angus who is chair a group that is working to create the Regional Economic Development Agency.  Angus says there are already several agencies that cover economic development but not on a regional level. This group would include all First nations and municipalities.  He says the REDA would give the Northwest a unified voice at both the provincial and federal levels.
