5 The brunt of these reductions was borne by the primary level of the industry, while the secondary level of production, already firmly entrenched in the Canadian economy, was less affected. To offset the impact on would-be primary producers, the bounty system was generously expanded. Pig iron smelted from domestic ore was to receive a $3 per ton bounty and iron produced from imported ore, previously excluded from the schedule, now qualified for a $2 per ton bonus. Bounties on puddled bars, ingots, and steel billets were hiked from $2 to $3 a ton.

In the last decade of the century, Ontario began drawing up its own blueprint for industrial development. 'Encouragement of the industry, not its discouragement, is the office and duty of governments,' concluded the commissioners of the 1890 Ontario Royal Commission on Mineral Resources.
