Canadian agricultural producers and processors are able to access a wide range of government funding to offset the cost of strategic growth and investment projects. With so many companies operating in this sector across the country, federal and provincial governments offer targeted funding to drive business development. As a result, forward-planning companies can access thousands or even millions of dollars to complete projects that unlock growth potential.
On July 24, 2019, Chatham-Kent Economic Development is hosting a lunch and learn to help food and beverage industry businesses understand how to take advantage of agricultural grants.
When used strategically, government funding programs can be leveraged for most growth and investment-oriented projects. Businesses who are the most successful with funding are able to build a comprehensive funding plan consisting of programs that cover all areas of their strategic plan to optimize their funding potential while minimizing their financial commitment. If you are in Chatham-Kent on July 24th, don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about Canadian government funding for your business!
