OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to advise that the Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages, has announced that businesses and organizations across Canada can now submit applications through the new Jobs and Growth Fund. Applications are being accepted on a continuous intake basis until March 31, 2024, or until funding is fully committed.
Delivered by Canada’s Regional Development Agencies (RDAs), the new fund provides $700 million nationally over three years to support a regional response and stimulate economic recovery following the COVID-19 crisis by investing in projects that will help to create jobs over the next three years and beyond. This includes up to $70 million dedicated to businesses created after January 2020 that meet eligibility criteria.
