President's Message

Photo of Karen Ellis, President (Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario)

The past year has been a particularly busy and exciting time for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), and I am pleased to be able to report on FedDev Ontario's accomplishments and the great strides we made in preparing for our second five-year mandate.

FedDev Ontario celebrated a number of milestones in 2013–14 as the Southern Ontario Advantage Initiatives came to a close along with the Community Improvement Infrastructure Fund. The launch of the Southern Ontario Prosperity Initiatives and Advanced Manufacturing Fund, and extension of both the Eastern Ontario Development Program and the Economic Development Initiative provided occasion to meet with stakeholders and share our vision and plans for the future.

This year's report presents a unique opportunity to reflect upon and summarize the totality of FedDev Ontario's first five years; from delivering stimulus programs to ease the burden of challenging economic times, to cultivating key partnerships that will lead to long-term business growth, we remain committed to our mandate and to the people of southern Ontario to promote the development of stronger, more prosperous communities.

Karen Ellis
President
