Good News – Bad News and Event Invitation Reminders

I am happy to share the good news that Yves Landry Foundation’s AIME program that helps manufacturers recover 50% of the cost of skills training in advanced technology, equipment, software or process (e.g. Lean), is back for a short time. The applications are accepted for training with completion dates between Feb.29, 2020 to May 31, 2020.

Don’t procrastinate! Last time the funding ran out within 2-3 months. Check your eligibility now or reply to this email to get started.


On a sad note, as of May 31st, Southwestern and Eastern Ontario Development Funds no longer accept applications until further notice. The provincial government is working on some modifications to the programs, and we will keep you posted.

The funding programs constantly change, as you can see. To get you up-to-date, we invite you to attend the following events where we will go through the funding programs available for Ontario businesses.

June 20th, 10 a.m. Webinar: Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things and Government Funding. Register here.

June 26th, 10 a.m. Seminar: Enterprise Resource Planning and Government Funding. Register here.

I am heading to Windsor to attend Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association’s Annual Conference tomorrow, on June 12th. If you are attending too, please, reply to this email and I will be happy to meet you.
