For the majority of towns, cities and municipalities, their Main Street is the centre hub of activity.
A place for local businesses to thrive, compete and a place for visitors and residents alike to flock to year round.
Well, the Ontario Government, through the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) has just announced funding for municipalities right across the province.
It's all part of their $26-million dollar Main Street Revitalization Initiative which will be doled out by the Association of Municipalities of Ontario and the Rural Ontario Municipal Association.
The funding amounts for each municipality are based on population size, while also providing fairness to those municipalities with smaller population centres.
The funding is all part of the Province's plan to help boost small business across Ontario.
