Town of Renfrew Advocacy Update at ROMA
Members of Council and Town staff are in Toronto attending the annual ROMA Conference.

This week, Town officials and staff travelled to the Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) conference, fostering meaningful discussions with key Ministers and their associates.The Town of Renfrew had the privilege of engaging in 5 delegations with representatives from:

  • Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing 
  • Ministry of Finance  (joint delegation with North Algona Wilberforce)
  • Ministry of Transportation 
  • Ministry of Energy @ontarioenergy (joint delegation with Bonnechere Valley and Mississippi Mills)
  • Ministry of Environment Conservation and Parks

These discussions were pivotal in addressing local issues, policy matters, and expressing our funding concerns. The exchanges provided a platform to showcase the incredible progress Renfrew is making and outline our strategic plans for a prosperous future.

A special thank you to MPP John Yakabuski who took the time out of his busy schedule to join in on multiple delegations with Renfrew to offer his insight and support. The Town of Renfrew is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with our municipal partners and the provincial government towards our shared goals.

Together, we are building a resilient and thriving Renfrew!
