Eastern Ontario Development Program

Through Canada's Economic Action Plan, the federal government is providing $20 million over two years for the Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP) to support business and community development in rural areas of Eastern Ontario.

About the Program:

The Eastern Ontario Development Program is a contributions program, intended to promote economic development in rural Eastern Ontario. The program - which is now administered by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario - contributes to the successful development of business and job opportunities, as well as sustainable self-reliant communities, by supporting community-based initiatives that attract and retain youth, supporting skills development, providing access to capital for new and existing businesses, and supporting technological enhancements.

How It Works:

The program is delivered through Community Futures Development Corporations in the Eastern Ontario region, which extends east from Durham Region and Algonquin Park and is bounded by the Quebec border. The cities of Ottawa and Kingston are not included.

Who Is Eligible:

Non-profit organizations (including municipalities), community development organizations and associations, Aboriginal organizations, entrepreneurs and small to medium-sized businesses located within the boundaries of the 15 rural Eastern Ontario Community Futures Development Corporations may submit applications.
