The announcement of the $10 million repayable contribution to Dr. Oetker Canada was made on May 24 in London, but the actual funding was made two months earlier. There's often quite a lag between the funding and the announcement.
I don't think we've heard an announcement about the $12 million given to the Western Ontario CFDC Association, but two months ago they were advertising a job opening for someone to manage a business loan fund "intended to support community innovation and business development" under FedDev's Prosperity Initiative. So now we know the amount of money involved (over a two-year period). It will be interesting to see the details once the formal announcement is made. The Western Ontario CFDC Association covers an area that includes all of Southwestern Ontario.
Four of the five biggest FedDev fundings of the year took place in Q4, and U of T's $20 million was the largest of the year, edging out the University of Waterloo's $19.6 million, awarded in August.
