Fact Sheet   Eastern Ontario Development Program   The Eastern Ontario Development Program is an economic development initiative focused on addressing economic challenges in eastern Ontario and taking advantage of innovative opportunities in the region. Since its inception in 2004, this successful program has been renewed several times. The five-year renewal of the program, effective April 1, 2014, is expected to result in more strategic, long-term economic development investments and collaborative projects that will benefit eastern Ontario businesses and communities.   The Government of Canada’s renewed commitment to the program is based on its success. This success is due to the strong delivery model which utilizes the eastern Ontario’s 15 Community Futures Development Corporations (CFDCs) and for larger regional projects through Northumberland CFDC. Applications will be solicited by each CFDC and Regional projects by Northumberland CFDC and assessed on their potential to stimulate local and regional economic development and create jobs.   The renewed Eastern Ontario Development Program focuses on outcomes that align with the federal government’s priority to promote the development of a strong and diversified economy. CFDCs and the Northumberland CFDC will consider project proposals in the following three areas:

  • Business Development (BD): Promote growth of new and existing businesses in rural eastern Ontario communities. (See below for Trenval local applications)
  • Community Innovation (CI): Advance community-led economic development to enhance and diversify local economies.  (See below for Trenval local applications)
  • Collaborative Economic Development Projects (CEDP): Support collaborative economic development projects that demonstrate benefits to multiple communities. TO SUBMIT A REGIONAL APPLICATION: For contact information click on Northumberland CFDC
