Ontario Budget

EACOM Welcomes Ontario Budget, Including Measures that Support Forestry

Montreal - EACOM Timber Corporation welcomed the 2016 Ontario provincial budget. The company is especially pleased with Premier Wynne's sustained commitment of $60 million in public resource access roads funding for 2016-17. This funding demonstrates the Government's support for building and maintaining public resource access roads in Northern and rural Ontario that benefit all Ontarians.

"We'd like to thank Minister Bill Mauro and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry for their continued support of Ontario's forest products sector," said Kevin Edgson, President and CEO of EACOM Timber Corporation. "Our forest products sector is a world leader in innovation, trade, diversification, and sustainability. The support provided in the 2016 budget will help to strengthen Ontario's industry, and create stability for our people and the communities in which we work."

Ontario's forest products sector employs 56,500 people. Working together with the provincial government, the sector expects to see continued growth, providing innovative, sustainably harvested wood products to consumers in Canada and around the world.
