The proposed New Gold Mining Project in Northwestern Ontario will require a workforce of 500+ people during the construction and operation phases. New Gold has committed to work together in partnership with the Rainy River First Nations and Naicatchewenin First Nation to ensure their communities and members benefit from the employment, training, contracting and other opportunities that stem from the project in their traditional territory. SvN assisted consulting firm rePlan and New Gold in the preparation of an Accommodation Study to identify partnerships, financing and construction opportunities to address the limited housing opportunities in the Rainy River community.
Rainy River Workforce Accommodation Study
We build worker housing for resource, investment and infrastructure projects that serve emerging economies around the world. These housing solutions address the immediate workforce requirements of a project, and have the capacity to be reconfigured for long-term use.
Our team conducts research and creates strategy for government and non-government clients on a wide range of economic development issues. This includes strengthening, broadening and diversifying the economic base of regions, cities and towns and accelerating development through improvements to land use, urban design, planning policy and governance.
