The Story

The Ontario Emerging Technologies Fund supports the collaboration between qualified venture capital funds and other private investors into companies working towards:

  • Clean technologies
  • Digital media and information and communications technologies
  • Life sciences and advanced health technologies

This discretionary Ontario government funding program is accepting investments made alongside qualified co-investors. Any companies interested in investment must work through Qualified Investors.

Funding for Small Business

The Ontario Emerging Technologies Fund was created due to emerging challenges from technology companies experiencing difficulty in raising venture capital.

The Provincial Government has provided $250M in business funding grants under this funding program, committing to a maximum of $50 million per year for five years.
