Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario

Launched in 2009, the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) was created to support the growing needs and realities of Southern Ontario, a region suffering the lasting effects of the global economic recession. FedDev Ontario fulfills a key commitment in Canada’s Economic Action Plan to deliver short-term and long-term support for Southern Ontario’s for-profit businesses.

As a result of the Economic Action Plan 2013, FedDev Ontario is providing $920 million over five years to renew the agency’s funding, starting on April 1, 2014. FedDev Ontario is supporting the competitiveness, innovation and diversification of Southern Ontario's economy by:

  • Delivering strategic investments to businesses, not-for-profit organizations and communities
  • Establishing and strengthening collaborative partnerships with key economic stakeholders
  • Representing the region's interests at the national level

The goal is to develop the right tools, strategies, partnerships and funding to ensure the region grows and attracts the smartest minds and most promising ideas to market. FedDev Ontario provides support through multiple funding streams, such as contributions, matching funds, repayable loans and non-repayable loans. This service is available to clients who meet the program eligibility requirements and are committed to meeting the program objectives to secure FedDev funding and support.
