The Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence received $20 million last year and the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research received $4 million, but this year's government financial figures show that funding is gone.

The Progressive Conservative government is trying to eliminate an $11.7 billion deficit, and a spokeswoman for the economic development minister says Ontario needs to get its fiscal house in order after the previous Liberal government's spending.

Sarah Letersky says the government has a great working relationship with both institutes and looks forward to continuing to make Ontario a top destination for AI commercialization.
