Northern Ontario Downtowns Project

The Northern Ontario Downtowns Project, made possible by funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, is a comprehensive community engagement and research initiative designed to help promote and illustrate the importance of Northern Downtowns (Thunder Bay, Sault St. Marie, Timmins, Sudbury and North Bay). Building on a nationwide study undertaken by CUI examining 17 downtowns across Canada (The Value of Investing in Canadian Downtowns), the goal of this project is to inspire and inform city builders and stakeholders about the innovation and opportunities for downtown revitalization.
