The Jobs and Growth Fund is now open for applications.
On July 13, 2021, the Government of Canada launched the Fund to help job creators and the organizations that support them to future-proof their businesses, build resiliency, and prepare for long-term growth.
Announced in Budget 2021, Canada’s Regional Development Agencies are delivering the $700 million national initiative across Canada.

- Support the transition to a green economy;
- Foster an inclusive recovery;
- Preserve Canada’s competitiveness and future-proof SMEs through digital adoption; and,
- Strengthen capacity in sectors critical to Canada’s recovery and growth.
