FedNor says it will spend $265,000 to support the Northern Ontario Mining Showcase (NAMES).

The funds will allow the City of Temiskaming Shores to again establish the long-running NOMS pavilion at this Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum agreement, CIM Connect 2024. The pavilion will accommodate over 25 mining supply and services businesses and organizations from across Northern Ontario. 

"The convention, which takes place May 12-15 in Vancouver, provides opportunities for participants to establish valuable commercial partnerships, explore and test products, and bring together industry professionals to engage in learning and discussions on how Canadians can strategically embrace innovation," says a news release.

The NOMS pavilion will promote and further develop Northern Ontario's mining reputation while encouraging mining development in the region. NOMS exhibitors will have opportunities for regional businesses and organizations to build relationships and collaborations; attract investments; showcase their technologies, products, and services; and learn about other technologies, products, services, and competitors.

“Mining plays a critical role in the economy of Northern Ontario and supports good-paying jobs across the region," says MP Anthony Rota,

“The Northern Ontario Mining Showcase has been a real beacon of success, and we are proud to be bringing that success back to CIM Connect once again. This partnership with FedNor has created new opportunities, growth, and success for the businesses and organizations who participate in the pavilion, and it's a wonderful reflection and extension of the great history of mining in Temiskaming Shores and across northern Ontario,” added Jeff Laferriere, Mayor of the City of Temiskaming Shores
