Location: Online Webinar via GoToWebinar


The government of Ontario is committed to partnering with their rural communities to strengthen economic opportunities and create great jobs, while enriching the beauty that rural Ontario has to offer.

We’re happy to have seen an increase in Ontario provincial funding for businesses in rural areas and wanted to dedicate a webinar to this space.

Mentor Works' Business Development Executive, Alex Barlow, will share a wide range of federal and provincial government funding opportunities that are available for businesses in rural regions throughout Ontario. Hiring and training employees, researching and developing innovative products/processes, expanding production and exports, and purchasing advanced technologies are just some of the ways that businesses plan to build a competitive edge; fortunately, these are all areas where companies can receive government grants and incentives.
