Thank you for your interest in Ontario Made. This is a free program for all manufacturers in Ontario to raise awareness of your locally built goods. We offer a digital branded logo that can be used on your products and marketing materials to help your company promote your locally made products to your neighbours. It will help Ontarians easily identify which products their neighbours built so they can make informed buying decisions.Register your ProductsEdit your listings
Approved product lists will be shared with retailers to encourage new connections. Our goal is to expand the awareness of what is Ontario Made to help consumers make informed decisions. We will proudly promote your products through our various channels and through our partners.
Over the coming months we will be taking the following steps to build this program:
- Manufacturers: Working to build a listing of what is Ontario Made, provide the digital Ontario Made logo, and encourage participation throughout the province
- Retailers: Raising awareness of the program and encourage participation and promotion of Ontario Made products
- Consumers: Providing a searchable consumer database to help them find Ontario Made products, and launching a social media campaign to highlight and promote Ontario Made goods
Here is how you can participate:
Once the form is complete, we will review, confirm the details and provide your company with a digital logo that can be used on qualifying products and on your marketing materials (including social media, websites, brochures and more). The first 750 manufacturers that registered for the program received complimentary labels. If you’re interested in ordering Ontario Made labels, email OntarioMade@cme-mec.ca.
- Use the Ontario Made logo on your qualifying products and as part of your product promotion with consumers
- Tell your customers to look for the logo where you sell your products
*Note: Qualifying manufactured goods are those that have undergone their last substantial transformation in the province of Ontario. This does not necessarily mean these goods qualify for under “Made in Canada” labeling requirements as determined by the Competition Bureau of Canada.
