CME SMART Prosperity Now, administered by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) and funded by Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev) is about fostering the long term growth for small to medium size businesses. Ontario manufacturers must promote growth by transitioning to a more sustainable business model through enhancing productivity, integrating new and innovative technologies to products and/or processes that include alternative energy and clean technology considerations for future prosperity and global export opportunities.

To be eligible for SMART Prosperity Now funding, applicants must be a small – mid size manufacturer in Southern Ontario with between 15 – 1000 employees corporately and are looking to invest in product and process improvements that will develop and expand your export opportunities and global competitiveness.
