Programs Now Open
OVIN programs support the development and demonstration of automotive technologies and mobility solutions. We're now accepting applications for all streams of the C/AV and EV R&D Partnership Funds, as well as Wintertech Development and Talent Development.
Ontario’s 2021 Budget announced further support for the auto sector by investing $56.4 million over the next four years to build on the successful elements of Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Network (AVIN) and create the Ontario Vehicle Innovation Network (OVIN). OVIN’s expanded mandate will help foster the next generation of electric, connected, and autonomous vehicle and mobility technologies in Ontario.
