Financial grant

On March 30, 2017, the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, announced a grant of Can.$102 million (US$77 million) in Ford Motor Company of Canada. Provided under the Automotive Innovation Fund, the grant supports a Can.$1 billion (US$750 million) investment in Ontario by which Ford will launch a new Connectivity Innovation Centre to undertake advanced research and development into connected vehicle technologies. This Centre will focus on hardware and software solutions in the areas of mobility, connectivity, data analytics and consumer interface. The company will also secure a new engine mandate at its Windsor Engine Plant, and will also strengthen research and development capacity in three primary areas: advanced powertrain at its Advanced Powertrain Engineering Research and Development Centre in Windsor, Ontario; vehicle lightweighting technologies throughout the production process; and the reduction of stationary industrial facility emissions at its Fumes-to-Fuel R&D Centre of Excellence at the Oakville Assembly Complex.
