Ontario announces new agri-food supply chain funding

Ontario invests $25 million over three years to support food production and the agri-food supply chain

The Government of Ontario has announced an additional $25 million in funding, to be spent over the next three years, that will be made available to support employers in the agri-food supply chain. Project-based funding will be aimed at addressing Ontario’s food processing capacity shortage, while working to increase the sector’s ability to respond to future economic disruptions.

Funding through this project will be awarded under the Strategic Agri-Food Processing Fund. The fund will provide grants of up to $3 million to agri-food businesses so that they can invest in capital, equipment, and new technologies. One of the project’s long-term goals will be to increase food security for Ontarians while creating jobs and economic opportunities for Ontario’s rural communities.

Specific details on how to access the program will be available following the program’s official launch in the Spring of 2022. For more information on how the City of Hamilton supports the agri-food, agribusiness, and food processing sectors, please click this link.
