Government of Ontario

Ontario Genomics is partly funded by the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade as the province’s only entity focused exclusively on stimulating and nurturing genomics innovation to grow Ontario’s knowledge-based economy.

Since its inception, Ontario Genomics has secured over $450 million of Genome Canada funding with total budgets (including co-funding) of more than $1.2 billion for over 200 Ontario-led genomics research initiatives, which has translated into new discoveries, products and companies.

Ontario Genomics partners with the Ministry to drive system level collaboration and innovation. For instance, Ontario Genomics has initiated the Ontario Personalized Medicine Network (OPMN) to identify a roadmap for the implementation of personalized medicine in the province of Ontario.
