Stacking Provincial and Federal Government Funding Programs

When applying for funding, businesses often have access to multiple sources of funding. This includes provincial funding (i.e. Ontario business grants), regional funding (i.e. Western Canada business grants), and federal government funding (Canadian small business grants). Businesses can combine federal and regional funding programs with those provided provincially to optimize funding contributions. This is a strategy known as ‘stacking’ government funding programs. It’s one of the many strategies you can use to tap into more funding for your upcoming projects.
Note: Not all programs can be stacked, and there is often a limit (either a percentage of project costs or a total value) that cannot be surpassed.
