Small Business Funding Grants and Loans for Start-ups

As it turns out, most Canadian and Ontario government grants and loans are only applicable to businesses that have been incorporated for at least three years. This is not to say that start-ups and entrepreneurs do not have resources available to them. We provide resources to help start-up companies get their idea off the ground and solidify their growth path and financing to assist with their advancement.
