Investing in made-in-Ontario products

Ontario is reducing its reliance on other countries for critical supplies like medical masks by buying more of the things we rely on from Ontario and Canadian companies. Through the Ontario Together fund, we’re providing Ontario-based companies with financial support to re-tool operations or expand to support the province’s long-term resilience. We’re leveraging the province’s purchasing power to ensure consistent access to high-quality, reliable products at the best value.
