Creating Jobs and Boosting Economic Growth in Rural Ontario

The Ontario Rural Economic Development (RED) program helps rural and Indigenous communities attract investment, create jobs and boost economic development. The first intake of the redesigned program will open July 29, 2019.

The updated program will continue to support projects that diversify and grow local economies and will now target more impactful projects with tangible community benefits. It will also reduce the burden for applicants, create efficiencies in program delivery, and better align with the government's priorities of creating jobs and removing barriers to investment and growth in Ontario's rural communities.

The program will offer two new project categories:
  • Economic Diversification and Competitiveness (projects that remove barriers to job growth and attract investment); and
  • Strategic Economic Infrastructure (projects that advance economic development and investment opportunities)
