Choose from many available funding types

Due to a lack of funding, many entrepreneurial ideas end before they have a chance to truly get started. Facilities, equipment, supplies, inventory, marketing, transportation, websites, employees, training, and countless other factors all contribute to expenses that can hamper a start up or existing small business from reaching its potential. Fortunately, the Canadian government has responded to this need by offering small business financing programs.

Access government money for small business needs

It may be difficult to believe, but the government wants your small business to succeed. By spending its money to help you now, the Canadian government is making an investment in the country’s economic future because you will use the money to create jobs and increase tax revenues. This is why Canadian federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal government agencies provide grants, loans, tax considerations, and more.

Finding these Canadian government grants and loans is not easy, and can take a lot of time and research, so Small Business Grants Canada provides a variety of resources you can access. From articles to help you better understand the general process of making your small business dream a reality, to providing direct information on available funding programs, we are here to help.
