Canada will continue to benefit from responsible economic policies in 2015–16, including our low taxes, free trade opportunities and responsible investment regime.

The Industry Portfolio will help sustain job creation and economic growth by effectively managing programs and services that help Canadian companies compete and innovate. Canadians can depend on our government to invest in programs that benefit them the most. In 2015–16, the Industry Portfolio will continue to invest in world-class research and innovation that help companies compete at home and abroad.

The Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) plays a key role in assisting businesses and communities in southern Ontario by supporting programs that produce positive economic results for the region. FedDev Ontario will continue to analyze and strategically respond to the economic needs of southern Ontario through programs that promote innovation and job creation.

The Industry Portfolio will help deliver on our government's commitment to return to a balanced budget by managing programs and services effectively. I am confident that we will meet our objective and that FedDev Ontario will continue to contribute toward economic growth and prosperity that benefit all Canadians.

James Moore
Minister of Industry
