The Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure (MEDEI) partners with governments and industry on programs, services, and initiatives to promote exports, attract foreign investment, and expand economic opportunities for Ontarians. MEDEI works extensively with the Ontario manufacturing sector through a wide array of strategic funding programs to strengthen competitiveness and drive research, development and commercialization. The Advanced Manufacturing Investment Strategy provides loans towards the adoption of advanced manufacturing techniques and technologies. MEDEI also administers the Next Generation of Jobs Fund, a five-year initiative to support research, development and commercialization and attract new investments in strategic industry sectors. MEDEI continues to refine its policy strategy for a more robust manufacturing sector through its partnership with the Ontario Manufacturing Council, a group of manufacturing executives that advises the government on the challenges and opportunities that Ontario manufacturers face as they compete in a globally competitive marketplace.
