Minister's Message

Photo of the Honourable Christian ParadisOur government's top priorities are jobs, growth, and long-term prosperity for all Canadians. That is why the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) was created in 2009. The Agency was established to help the region mitigate and overcome regional and global economic challenges and has evolved to align with the vision of creating long-term, sustainable opportunities.

In 2013–14, the economy will remain a priority for our government. We are focused on the drivers of growth and job creation—innovation, investment, education, skills, and diversified communities. FedDev Ontario will continue to advocate for southern Ontario as fundamental to building a stronger Canadian economy and positioning Canada as a global competitor in the long term.

In only a few short years the Agency has built a solid track record of support for economic development in southern Ontario—including technological innovation, business and community development—and it is now uniquely qualified to provide an informed and strategic approach to supporting emerging opportunities with the greatest potential for growth in the region.

It is my pleasure to present this year's Report on Plans and Priorities for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.

The Honourable Christian Paradis
Minister of Industry
Minister of State (Agriculture)
