Rural Economic Development Program

OMAFRA will continue to deliver the community focused economic development program under Rural Economic Development (RED) program. Information about the renewed program will be shared once available.

The RED program helps remove barriers to economic development for communities in rural Ontario. With the support of the RED program, rural communities are better positioned to attract investment, create jobs and enhance economic growth.

In order to improve service delivery and coordination of regional support programs the former business stream of the RED program will be integrated with the Jobs and Prosperity Fund, as announced in the Ontario Budget 2016.
