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
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.
