Regional Relief and Recovery Fund: COVID-19
The Government of Canada announced today nearly $1B in support to affected businesses and communities. This initiative is implemented by the six regional development agencies.
FedDev Ontario delivers programs and services to support innovation and economic growth in southern Ontario.
In southern Ontario, $252.4 million is available as follows:
$213 million for SMEs facing financial pressure; and
$39.4 million to provide rural businesses with access to capital and business support, delivered by southern Ontario’s Community Futures Development Corporations.
Priority may be given to SMEs in the manufacturing, technology, tourism and other sectors key to the region, that are major employers in small communities or that support the government’s commitment to underrepresented groups.
