Southwestern Ontario Funding for Investment in Innovation (SOFII)

Our office is able to assist those organizations interested in applying for a SOFII grant.

The program supports high-growth, innovative small and medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in rural and urban communities by offering loans of $150,000 to $500,000 to support all aspects of growth challenges facing them.

The SOFII loan fund acts as a catalyst for increased investment in and support for innovation and is one element in the emerging climate of support for high growth companies in Southern Ontario. Launched by the Government of Canada in July 2012, SOFII is supported through FedDev Ontario and is delivered by Community Futures Ontario East and Western Ontario Community Futures Development Corporation Association.

SOFII is a $40 million, self-sustaining fund available to eligible organizations across Southern Ontario.  More details are available here
