Background

As Canada's most populous region—home to more than 12 million residents living in 288 communities—southern Ontario is a key contributor to the Canadian economy. In 2009, the Government of Canada created the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) to support the competitiveness, innovation and diversification of southern Ontario's economy through enabling instruments Order in Council P.C. 2009-1410 and Order in Council P.C. 2009-1411. To fulfill its mandate, FedDev Ontario delivers strategic investments to businesses, not-for-profit organizations and communities; establishes and strengthens collaborative partnerships with key economic stakeholders; and represents the region's interests at the national level.

As announced in Budget 2018, FedDev Ontario's mandate was renewed for a third term, from 2018-19 to 2023-24. The Agency has been allocated $920 million in core funding for this period to support economic growth in southern Ontario through the delivery of federal programs and services. With renewed funding, FedDev Ontario will continue to deliver programs and services to support innovation and economic growth, leading to the jobs of the future and maintaining Canada's competitive edge in the fast-paced and increasingly global economy.

The Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) is the minister responsible for this organization.

Responsibilities

FedDev Ontario is responsible for promoting the development of a strong, prosperous and diversified southern Ontario economy. In 2018–19, the Agency will build on its solid foundation of providing benefits to Canadians through innovative programs targeted to businesses, communities, post-secondary institutions and other intermediaries.

Additional information about us, our role, and our funding opportunities is available on the FedDev Ontario website.
