Many Canadian small business owners are able to acquire additional financial assistance from a number of sources. Grants are a popular source of assistance due to not having to be paid back. However, often have very specific, limited applications that keep them from being attainable in all instances.

However, the most widely available option tends to be loans, which usually have less specific terms for applicants.
