The FDC Economic Development Commission in partnership with Community Futures Greenstone is undertaking the final phase of the Economic Development Transition Project. The project was initiated shortly after the announcement by Hudbay of their projected mine closure. They held workshops, met with 67 businesses and now move the action plan on to gather information from the communities of Flin Flon Creighton and Denare Beach.
Two public sessions for community input will be held on Monday with one from 2 to 4 pm and the other from 6 to 8 pm at Flin Flon City Hall. Eight focus group sessions have also been arranged to meet with stakeholders from groups, organizations or agencies including Indigenous, education, youth, Chamber of Commerce, Main Street Task Force, tourism and mining services. They note this is an opportunity for you to share your thoughts and opinions regarding future economic and community development so everyone is encouraged to participate and let your voice be heard to form part of this strategy.
A list of meetings and times is available on the City of Flin Flon website and www.flinflononline.com.
