Investing in Regional Diversification (IRD)

Through Budget 2013, the Government of Canada demonstrated its continued commitment to workers, families and communities in southern Ontario with the launch of the Southern Ontario Prosperity Initiatives, which includes Investing in Regional Diversification (IRD).
IRD supports the long-term development of stronger, more diverse economies in southern Ontario communities. IRD leverages unique regional assets and local expertise to attract new investment and opportunities for economic growth and development.
The initiative brings not-for-profit organizations and private sector/community partners together to build on economic strengths and opportunities to respond to challenges, and develop ways to create competitive and resilient communities.
