New! Due to the travel restrictions put in place by the Province and Federal Government related to the covid-19 pandemic response, we are not able to consider support of any travel outside of Canada at this time.

Recognizing this is a difficult time for businesses in the Province it is important to highlight that the Program can also consider support of past investments made by the business (retroactive to April 1, 2019).  Eligible expenses on funding list may help address current business needs in response to the covid-19 crisis.  These include but are not limited to; development of e-commerce, pivoting to new market channels, new product development, and investments in equipment to meet current changes in product demand.

Please refer to the funding list for eligible activities. Only activities included in the Funding List will be considered.

Ensure you are submitting any and all documents that support your application.  This includes all invoices and/or quotes AND documents needed in order to assess the merit of the project (marketing/business plan, feasibility studies, letters of support, etc.).

Grant request must be more than $50,000, to a maximum of $500,000 per applicant per fiscal year.
