The Province of Ontario has launched a new logo to help consumers identify, find and buy provincially-made products.

The Ontario Made logo, part of a program called Ontario Made, was launched today by Premier Doug Ford and cabinet officials.

“Ontario has always been Canada’s workshop, and our products are recognized as the gold standard across the country and around the world,” said Premier Ford. “Our government is proud to support Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters’ Ontario Made program. Promoting locally made products will be essential to building a strong, self-sufficient province and key to our economic recovery.”

The province says manufacturers can use the new logo to help consumers identify made-in-Ontario products.

The free program is open to all manufacturers in Ontario, according to the province, and manufacturers are being encouraged to register their products. Officials say eligible manufactured goods are those that have undergone their “last substantial transformation” in the province of Ontario.

Products will then be reviewed for the Ontario Made program and if accepted, the program’s organizers will provide businesses with a digital copy of the logo that can be used for printing labels or tags.

Officials say the first 750 manufacturers to register their products made in Ontario will receive 3,000 complimentary 1 inch labels.

The Ontario Made program is also launching SupportOntarioMade.ca, a website directory that will list made-in-Ontario products.

The province says they’ve invested $500,000 into the Ontario Made program.
