Applications for the New Ontario Small Business Support Grant are now open. This vital program will provide eligible businesses a one-time grant in much needed support to help get them through these challenging times.

A minimum of $10,000 and up to $20,000 will be provided to eligible small businesses facing challenges due to the necessary Provincewide Shutdown. This grant allows flexibility for small business owners so that they can spend it however makes the most sense for their businesses (e.g., paying rent, paying employee wages, maintaining inventory, etc.).
