New funding for small businesses in Canada was announced last week for small businesses through the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF), with an increase in maximum support for enterprises from $40,000 to $60,000. The fund is backed by the Government of Canada through FedDev Ontario and is open to non-profit organizations and rural enterprises that were not eligible for other relief measures, as well as those that received other supports but need more backing to weather the second wave. The extra $1 million invested in RRRF is available to new applicants, and also to local businesses that are existing recipients but can now receive tops up of $20,000 in funding, with up to 50% of the additional funds taking the form of grants, and the balance as a 0% interest loan with no fees or charges.
This program is a 13week long entrepreneurship training program with a robust curriculum inclusive of finance, business, marketing, research and wellness content. Facilitators from BDC, RBC, Google, Government of Canada and more will be present to share useful resources and tools for business success.
It’ll run every Tuesday, 6-7:30 pm.
