Services: Government Incentive Programs

The challenge facing most businesses is how to find and take advantage of what is out there. Most business owners receive financing through banking institutions. However, funding resources are available to SMEs (small-and-medium size businesses) from the provincial and federal levels of government and each year there are numerous funding programs available for SMEs to benefit from.

A large number of Canadian entrepreneurs indicate “obtain financing” as an obstacle to growth. The challenge facing most businesses is how to find and take advantage of what is out there from the government budgets. Every year, both levels of government instituted a budget that includes various funding programs that can help small companies tackle financing barriers so they can achieve growth and prosper. Whether the requirement is working capital, expanding the business, technology investment or purchasing equipment, there are many creative ways to approach government financing to solve these challenges.
