Supporting Jobs and Growth in Rural Ontario

Province Helping to Attract Investment and Create Jobs

Ontario is helping rural communities, organizations and businesses create jobs and attract investment with renewed support from the Rural Economic Development (RED) program.

The province has already invested more than $167 million in over 400 projects through the RED program since 2003, generating more than $1.2 billion in local economic activity and creating more than 35,000 jobs. The continuation of the program will help:

Strengthen the capacity of rural communities and regions to undertake economic development activities, such as market research and business expansion plans

  • Create  more competitive and diverse rural and regional economies
  • Attract investment, increase competitiveness and encourage greater collaboration among rural communities and businesses

Strengthening rural communities is part of the Ontario government's plan to create jobs, boost the economy and build a more fair and prosperous society.
