Apply Now: Canada United Small Business Relief Fund Accepting Additional Grant Applications
Supporting local business has never been more important and will be integral to moving Canada’s recovery forward. We’re pleased to share some great news about RBC’s Canada United campaign, of which the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce is a proud founding partner.
Last week, the federal government announced a $12 million contribution to the Canada United Small Business Relief Fund, enabling many more businesses across Canada to receive a grant of up to $5,000 to cover expenses related to personal protective equipment (PPE), renovations to accommodate re-opening guidelines and developing or improving e-commerce capabilities.
The Ontario Chamber of Commerce, on behalf of the national chamber network, will start taking new applications from small businesses as of 12 PM CST, Monday, October 26, 2020.
“Small businesses are at the heart of Canada’s communities and we know that, over the last several months, they have been faced with mounting challenges due to the pandemic,” said the Honorable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade for the Government of Canada. “Like so many others organizations, companies and associations, the Government of Canada is proud to support Canada United and we remain steadfast in our commitment to supporting small and local businesses so they are well-positioned for recovery and growth in the months to come.”
