For-Profit Businesses

The Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) was launched in 2009 to work with the region's communities, businesses and not-for-profit organizations to actively promote the region and build a strong foundation of partnerships and relationships to secure Canada's long-term prosperity.

Through Budget 2013, the Agency was renewed with an additional five-year mandate, beginning in April 2014, to help create and grow businesses, cultivate partnerships and build strong communities across southern Ontario.

The funding initiatives below are intended for for-profit businesses including small- and medium-sized enterprises, start-ups and multinational enterprises.

For help with finding information on starting a business, government financing programs, exporting, taxation or how to hire employees, please contact Canada Business Ontario.
