Jobs and Growth Fund

Important note:

FedNor has received a high number of applications for this funding program and demand significantly exceeds the amount of funding available. The program is now closed and further applications will no longer be considered.


Thank you for your interest.

The Jobs and Growth Fund provides funding to businesses and organizations to help create jobs and position local economies for long-term growth. The Fund, delivered by Canada's regional development agencies (RDAs), provides $700 million nationally over three years, which includes up to $70 million dedicated to businesses created after January 2020 that meet eligibility criteria.

In Northern Ontario, FedNor is investing $26.6 million to help job creators and the organizations that support them to future-proof their businesses, build resiliency and prepare for growth by transitioning to a green economy, fostering an inclusive recovery, enhancing competitiveness, and creating jobs in every corner of the country.
