Start your business Canada! Find government grants and financing
Canada Business Network has launched a series of 4 videos designed to highlight a variety of business services available to you. If you have a great business idea and are thinking of implementing it, these videos could help you start your business.
The third video in the series is called Find government grants and financing. After you’ve developed your business plan and received your permits and licences to legally run your business in Canada, you need to understand your financing options.
When starting a new business, there are many ways to get funding. Start with your own savings and think of turning to friends, family and potential other investors – many individuals can help you get your product off the ground. In addition to these options, you may also want to consider government funding. If you’re not sure how to find government funding opportunities, try our find financing tool which can help you find loans, government grants and funding programs from federal, provincial and territorial departments and crown corporations. Our search tool allows you to narrow your focus based on your type of business and the region where you plan to get started. You can also refine your search by determining how you plan on using the financing. For example, you may want the funding to buy or lease equipment, or you may want to hire or train new employees.
Starting a new business can be hard on your budget, so at Canada Business Network we strive to steer you in the right direction. For more information on receiving funding, feel free to explore our website or call us at our toll-free number, 1-888-576-4444, if you need more help.
