Ontario Emerging Technologies Fund (OETF)

The Ontario Emerging Technologies Fund will co-invest — with qualified venture capital funds and other private investors — directly into companies working within the focus areas defined by Ontario’s Innovation Agenda.

  • Clean technologies
  • Life sciences and advanced health technologies
  • Digital media and information and communications technologies.

A discretionary, non-entitlement investment program, the OETF is a $250 million fund that will commit a maximum of $50-million per year for five years. Investments will be made alongside qualified co-investors into innovative, high-growth Ontario companies. Only Qualified Investors — those approved as eligible to submit a potential investment opportunity for consideration — can propose investments to the fund. Companies interested in investment must work through Qualified Investors.
