We have some funding updates regarding the government grants available in Northern Ontario.
At this time, Northern Ontario Heritage Fund’s program is Temporarily Unavailable.
However, there is also great news for Northern Ontario businesses. The newly launched Northern Ontario Recovery Program, will support the adaptation of business operations and practices to meet public health guidelines for operations under re-opening stages, and support employee and consumer safety.
The program offers funding in the form of a conditional contribution and will not exceed $25,000.
Eligible companies will be considered Northern Ontario businesses, with at least one year of operations as of March 17, 2020 and impacted by the Province of Ontario Emergency Order that closed all non-essential businesses on March 24, 2020.
The intake will run from October 1 to December 31, 2020, so don’t wait until the end of the year. Start working on the Northern Ontario Recovery Program now.
