The NOW Program’s objective is to stimulate Women-owned and Women-led business start-ups and scale-ups in Northern Ontario. The NOW Program was developed to assist female entrepreneurs with accessing one-time professional services they might not typically be able to afford and to assist with the financial burden of setting up mentoring relationships. The NOW Program does not fund capital expenditures or ongoing professional fees.

The Community, Culture and Recreation funding stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program supports projects that improve access to and/or quality of community and recreation infrastructure. The Province will consider projects through two streams: the multi-purpose stream consisting of larger scale expansions of existing facilities or new build projects with a flexible project cap of $50 million, and the rehabilitation and renovation project stream, consisting of small-scale improvements of existing facilities with a project cap of $5 million.
The CCR application intake process began on September 3, and applications will be accepted until November 12, 2019. This application-based program is a competitive process and the Province is anticipating high demand for limited funding.
The Community, Culture and Recreation stream supports projects that improve access to and / or quality of community, cultural, and recreation priority infrastructure projects. Priority is given to projects that are community-oriented, non-commercial and open to the public. Projects must be completed prior to 2027-28.
In addition to federal criteria, Ontario’s objectives for the current proposed Community, Culture and Recreation stream project intake are noted below. Projects will be assessed based on their alignment with these objectives:
• Meets community and user needs or service gap
• Promotes good asset management planning
• Represents good value for money
• Fosters greater accessibility
The intake will include two categories of funding:
• Multi-Purpose Category
• Rehabilitation and Renovation Category
Eligible applicants under Ontario’s Community, Culture and Recreation Funding stream are:
• First Nations
• Other Indigenous communities / organizations
• Broader public sector organizations*
• Non-Profit organizations
* Broader public sector organizations include, for example, school boards, hospitals, colleges and universities.
Note: Joint projects between multiple eligible applicants, particularly those that service multiple communities, are encouraged and will be given additional consideration as part of the assessment process.
Note: Education and health care facilities are ineligible for funding, with the exception of those advancing Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action. However, broader public sector organizations that typically deliver health care and education could apply for projects outside their core mandate as long as they meet federal and provincial criteria. For example, a school board could apply for funding to construct or renovate a community centre attached to a school.
The completed application and supporting documentation must be submitted to Transfer Payment Ontario by 11:59:59 p.m. EDT on November 12, 2019.
For additional information and details, applicants are encouraged to reach out to Caroline Loiselle, Regional Advisor by telephone at (705) 494-0139, and or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
