September 12, 2023
As one of seven regional economic development agencies across Canada, the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) works with industry and community leaders, business owners, entrepreneurs, and organizations to help them reach their potential and create new possibilities across the region. FedDev Ontario’s strategic investments have made a significant difference for the competitiveness, innovation, and diversity of southern Ontario’s economy.
Today, the Honourable Filomena Tassi, Minister responsible for FedDev Ontario, announced the launch of a new, easy-to-use application process. It makes applying for funding easier, and more predictable for clients and will help ensure investments are available to those who need them to continue growing. Applications for funding will now be accepted three times per year (fall, winter and spring). The fall intake is open until November 7.
Funding is available for businesses to grow, innovate, and diversify so they can launch new products, compete in a changing marketplace, or reach new customers. Not-for-profit and community economic development organizations can also apply for funding to support businesses, grow economic networks, and strengthen the economic resilience of our communities. Further information on the types of projects that are eligible to receive funding, can be found here. Details on information sessions being offered to walk through the new process can be found here.
With this new client-centric process, the Government of Canada through FedDev Ontario will to continue to invest in key economic opportunities that support a green, inclusive, and globally competitive southern Ontario.

We will continue to invest in the people who are growing businesses across Ontario.”
