The great thing about receiving a grant is that it is free. You are under no obligation to pay the money back if you are eligible for a government grant that you want to use in your small business. There are specific criteria and rules about who is eligible for this free funding, and you may be one of those persons. Grants may also be renewable, so this increases the financial support you gain through the support of the government grants program for Canadians in small businesses.
There are currently 264 grant programs available in our Funding Database. In fact, the Funding Database currently has over 1,500 funding programs available for small business owners and startup entrepreneurs. What are you doing to take advantage of this? Become a member and start your search.
