Strong Economic Development

For over three decades Canada has had only 6 Regional Development Agencies. Canada has grown and changed a lot since then. That’s why we created two standalone agencies for Western Canada, PacifiCAN, and PrairieCAN, and one for Northern Ontario, FedNor. We need all our economies to grow, thrive, and be part of our economic recovery.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Continue to strengthen Canada’s Regional Development Agencies, so that rural and small communities have the support they need right where they are.
