Last year’s conference took place in Timmins Ontario September 27th and 28th focused on ‘Responding to Northern Ontario’s Demographic Shift
Northern Ontario is facing a combination of a declining and aging population. At the same time, the Indigenous population is young and growing, representing important opportunities for the north. These demographic shifts will have significant implications on Northern Ontario’s economy and society, impacting the long term sustainability of all 11 districts in the region. The conference brought together over 150 decision makers and community leaders from across Northern Ontario who explored evidenced-based solutions to address the challenges facing communities in Northern Ontario. Participants considered the roles that migration, engagement with Indigenous communities and local governance can have on improving the sustainability of the north.
