Automotive Supplier Competitiveness Improvement Program (ASCIP)


The Automotive Supplier Competitiveness Improvement Program (ASCIP) is now closed. ASCIP supported the improvement of auto parts supplier capabilities and competitiveness by increasing their ability to design and deliver products more efficiently.

ASCIP is a partnership between the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA), the Ministry of Economic Development and Growth (MEDG), and the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE).  The APMA drives industry outreach and program uptake across its membership and the broader sector, delivers marketing and promotional activities, works with applicants to develop project business plans, complete and submit applications, and provides program support. OCE administers and manages the jointly branded program, including application intake, review, contracting, funding disbursement, and reporting.

The APMA and the OCE successfully managed 5 application intake rounds across both project streams. Over 50 companies were awarded funding as a result of ASCIP.

Please note that this program is no longer accepting applications.

The APMA is working with the OCE to encourage the Provincial Government to expand and extend ASCIP funding.
