$110,000 to Support Local Festival and Events

The Ontario government is investing $110,000 through the Experience Ontario 2024 program to support two festivals and events in Nipissing.

 “The Experience Ontario 2024 investment will attract visitors to Mattawa and North Bay and increase our local economy,” said MPP Vic Fedeli. “Our government is encouraging Ontarians to explore all that these local communities have to offer by extending stays in accommodation, eating in restaurants and supporting small businesses.”


Local investments include:

·        $55,000 for Les Compagnons for the 62nd Carnaval des Compagnons in February 2025.

·        $55,000 for Mattawa for the 25th Mattawa Voyageur Days in July 2024.


“The Voyageur Days 25th anniversary team has been hard at work planning and ensuring that this year’s festival is safe and enjoyable for all. The festival attracts tourists from across the province to Mattawa. Free daytime activities for young and old to enjoy and a Canadian music line-up for the evenings make Voyageur Days an awesome experience!” – Raymond Belanger, Mayor, Mattawa.

 “Les Compagnons des francs loisirs are happy and grateful for the support of the provincial government towards its Carnival's activities. Thanks to Experience Ontario funding, we will be able to offer an enriching experience to our community and attract new visitors. We are eager to share with the community our programming for this 62nd Carnival, which promises to be an unforgettable celebration of our culture and heritage.” - Arnaud Claude, Director
