Mineral exploration becomes one of TEDC’s primary areas of focus

Apr 26, 2021

The Timmins Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) is the economic development team for the City of Timmins.   The role of the team is to facilitate economic and social activity that supports job creation, diversifies the economy and improves quality of life.  
The TEDC focuses on projects and activities related to Business Development and Retention, and Community Economic Development.  Activities include: creating, attracting, and retaining business and investment opportunities; in addition to community building and helping non-profits, social enterprises, and other organizations build capacity and achieve their mission.
Timmins has been historically known as one of the most prolific and top tier locations for exploration and mining activity.  Because of this, the mineral exploration industry has become one of the TEDC’s primary areas of focus.  Our staff work to generate awareness pertaining to the numerous exploration opportunities in Timmins and the surrounding area.  Additionally, our staff provide direct support to exploration companies interested in, or currently operating in Timmins.  The TEDC acts as a concierge service when working with these companies.  Whether it be funders, municipal departments, provincial or federal ministries, our team will bring all parties to the table to address current and future business development needs to find the best solutions for the company.
For more information, or if your company requires any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact Jeremy Elomaa, Business Development Specialist with the TEDC.
