With an investment of $1 million from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), the Township of Nipigon is developing its Railway Street lookout tower and rest area to provide visitors a view of the community’s waterfront and the Nipigon River Bridge, which will be Ontario’s first cable-stay bridge on the provincial highway system. In addition, Nipigon will construct a lagoon boardwalk to provide public access to the water’s edge and an events park to host special events, concerts and festivals.

Investing in tourism infrastructure is part of the government's economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
