2019 PMCN IMPACT AWARDS 

 

The Parry Sound Muskoka Community Network (PMCN) is a non-profit organization funded by FedNor to promote innovation through the adoption of digital and e-business applications throughout the region. Over the last eight years we’ve invested $1.35 million in the form of grants to help more than 500 business owners take their ideas and ambitions further.
