I signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Hon. Brad Duguid, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure (MOU) this morning that will help enhance the local economy and create jobs over the coming years in the Guelph Innovation District.
The District will meet employment and housing targets of Guelph’s Growth Management Strategy and the province’s Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe by supporting economic activities and jobs with a clean, green-economy and innovation focus.
The MOU signed today commits a portion of provincially-owned land in the district to the city’s plan to create this new, innovative employment area.
This is part of the province’s Open Ontario Plan to help create clean, green jobs and support innovation.
