The Canadian government grants and loans program would be classed as a non-traditional business loan venue. The reason being is because the interest rates on the government loans for small businesses are considered to be very low. In addition to this the terms for paying back these loans is usually far more extended than what one would find with the non traditional business loan agreements. The Canadian government grants and loan program for small business is a great opportunity for business owners that need finances to help their business.
