State of the North is an annual conference that brings together decision makers, community leaders, experts and innovators to explore the state of Northern Ontario from an economic, social, and environmental perspective. It’s time to take what we have learned and step forward into solution based discussions.

NPI’s 2018 State of the North Conference took place September 26-27 in North Bay, Ontario at the Best Western Conference Centre. This year’s theme was Bold Approaches: Taxing for Growth.

This two-day conference explores how other regions use tax policies to drive growth, and how these policies might apply to Northern Ontario to grow our communities and reduce inequalities. Attendees heard bold ideas from economic experts, sat in on panel discussions, and shared their own ideas with other influential leaders from across the province.
