Wherever your Canadian business is located, there are Canadian government funding opportunities that we can help you learn more about. This includes government grants for small business, as well as low interest loans for small-medium size business owners. Eastern Ontario small businesses, Northern Ontario businesses, Southern Ontario small businesses, Toronto and GTA small businesses, Atlantic Canadian businesses, and businesses across Western Canada, including British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba are all potentially eligible for funding programs and should join an information session to learn more about their Canadian government funding opportunities.
