Do you have a good idea to grow your business #inFrontenac?

Your project may be eligible for an Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP) grant of up to 50% reimbursement.  Some examples of eligible projects …

  • Trade Shows – to help you expand your market, EODP pays up to 50% of the cost of registration, travel, accommodation and meals to attend a trade show that you have not exhibited at previously
  • Skills training –  as an example, we have had a self-employed plumber who have used this funding to become certified gas fitters to expand the services he offers.
  • E-Commerce – want to build an on-line shopping component on your website – we will pay up to 50%.
  • Technical / Expert support  – would your business benefit by tapping into some expertise?  EODP can reimburse up to 50% of the cost.   We have a client who has benefited from hiring a niche marketing consulting firm.  Another client built a new commercial facility and EODP assisted with the technical drawings.
  • Equipment – The EODP may be able to assist with up to 50% of the cost if the equipment is innovative and/or you can demonstrate that it will improve your productivity and profitability.
