The Kapuskasing Economic Development Corporation is receiving FedNor funds to help stimulate economic development and enhance tourism in the region. The KEDC will receive more than $22,000 to determine the viability of establishing an all-season, multi-purpose facility in the town. The investment will complete a feasibility study to evaluate the benefits of building a 42,000 square foot dome which will extend the tourism season and expanding existing events such as the Lumberjack Festival, Farmer’s Market and Festival de la St. Jean.
