Regional Development Agencies across Canada

Regional Development Agencies across Canada help to address key economic challenges by providing regionally-tailored programs, services, knowledge and expertise that:

  • Build on regional and local economic assets and strengths;
  • Support business growth, productivity and innovation;
  • Help small- and medium-sized businesses effectively compete in the global marketplace;
  • Provide adjustment assistance in response to economic downturns and crises; and
  • Support communities.

Each Regional Development Agency brings a regional policy perspective in support of the national agenda through: regional economic intelligence to support national decision-making; contributing to federal regional coordination and cooperative relationships with other levels of government, community and research institutions, and other stakeholders; and supporting national priorities in regions.

By working collaboratively, the Regional Development Agencies ensure national coordination and maximized efficiencies, representing Canada on territorial development matters, and developing or renewing national programs or services delivered regionally.
