About the program

The Advanced Manufacturing and Innovation Competitiveness (AMIC) stream will provide financial support to advanced manufacturing companies with a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) across Ontario. It will provide investments in:

Overall, this will build Ontario’s economy of the future and secure good jobs for workers and communities
