You will be very interested to know that there are billions of Canadian government dollars dedicated to helping people in Canada start their own business via government grant money. A government grant is an ideal way to get underway with your small business, without the added worry of having another loan to repay when you start to make a little extra money in your new business. Grants are generally non-repayable, so it is a huge incentive for someone to apply for a grant which they can use to build a business and not add on another loan payment to their existing expenses.
