Southwestern Ontario Fund for Investment in Innovation

Our office is able to assist organizations interested in applying for the Southwestern Ontario Fund for Investment in Innovation (SOFII).

The program supports high-growth, innovative small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in rural and urban communities by offering loans of up to $1 million 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 Southwestern Ontario. Launched by the Government of Canada in July 2012, SOFII is supported through FedDev Ontario and delivered by the Western Ontario Community Futures Development Corporation Association (WOCFDCA).

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