The Government of Canada's Economic Action Plan committed $1 billion to provide timely, targeted economic stimulus to communities throughout Canada under the Community Adjustment Fund (CAF). In Ontario, CAF will provide $348.9 million over two years to support adjustment measures in communities most affected by the global economic downturn, including more than $101 million for projects in southern Ontario in 2009–10.

Listed below is a breakdown of projects approved for CAF funding in southern Ontario. Details on CAF funding in the City of Kingston will be announced on September 17.
