Investment Ready: Certified Site Program Changes
Marion Fantetti, Business Ombudsman, WindsorEssex Economic Development Corp.
The Ministry of Economic Development and Growth recently re-launched the Investment Ready: Certified Site Program. Based on feedback and recommendations from Deloitte Consulting, various improvements were made to help communities better compete for investment opportunities. Some of the new expanded Program benefits include new marketing incentives, additional funding, a longer certification term, and the inclusion of industrial properties located within business parks. Current enrolled property may also be eligible under the new Program changes. The new criteria also includes changes to the former Pre-Screening application whereby you must now schedule a consultation prior to submitting an application, for added assistance.
