My Main Street
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario announced a $23.25-million investment to establish My Main Street — a two- year program to support the recovery and revitalization of main streets and local businesses in southern Ontario.
My Main Street is helping to rebuild local main streets by driving business and restoring vibrancy to local communities across southern Ontario as Canadians recover from the pandemic.
Through the My Main Street Community Activator program, the Canadian Urban Institute is delivering Government of Canada support across southern Ontario for local community placemaking projects, including events, activities and community enhancements designed to draw visitors and increase local vibrancy.
The My Main Street Community Activator program is administered by the Canadian Urban Institute and funded by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario).
