Launch Lab client Mirmil receives $2.6M in funding from Ontario Government to promote the forest sector

The Ontario government is investing more than $2.6 million in Mirmil Products Limited to help promote the forest sector and support economic growth and job creation in South Eastern Ontario.

“As a sustainable and renewable industry, the forest sector has been a source of prosperity in Ontario communities for generations,” said Greg Rickford, Minister of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry. “By investing in Mirmil Products Limited, our Government is strengthening the economy in Campbellford and promoting a prosperous future for this region.”

The funding is being delivered through the Forest Sector Investment and Innovation Program and will help Mirmil Products expand operations, invest in new technology, and recruit more than 30 skilled workers to meet a growing demand for its products and services.

“As Ontario turns the corner on the pandemic, one of our top priorities is supporting economic growth across all areas of our province,” said Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade. “Mirmil’s relocation and expansion will help it fulfill large-scale commercial projects across North America and have significant positive impacts in Campbellford and the surrounding regional economy.”

“I am excited to welcome Mirmil Products Limited to Campbellford,” said MPP David Piccini. “The opening of Mirmil Products Limited in Campbellford allows our local talent to be a part of some of the largest commercial construction projects in the world. The investment from the Ontario Government will support Mirmil’s growth and increased demand for their millwork, creating new jobs for our community and the surrounding areas.”

“The funding we’re receiving from the Ontario government will allow Mirmil to continue to grow our business and increase our capabilities, allowing us to continue to represent South Eastern Ontario in some of the largest and most complex construction projects in the world,” said Travis Walker, President of Mirmil Products Limited.

The Forest Sector Investment and Innovation Program is a business support program designed to improve productivity and innovation, enhance competitiveness, support new market access and strengthen regional economies.
