Are You Taking Advantage of COVID-19 Business Support Grants?

Get COVID-19 Relief Funding for Your Business

COVID-19 has become a challenge for Canadians. Especially owners of small businesses that have been forced to shut down during lockdowns. Recently the federal government of Canada has introduced The Canada United Small Business Relief Fund (CUSBRF). This was established to help counterbalance the expenses incurred by small businesses in order to reopen safely or in order to implement technologies that would help their business move online. 

The Federal Government, along with the provinces and territories, have allocated a sum of funds that can now be extended to small businesses across all provinces for costs suffered starting March 15th of 2020. 

How Much is Your Business Entitled to? 

Each province within Canada has set out its own rules when it comes to the COVID-19 small business relief grant. Eligible small businesses will have access to funds that can be used to aid with the costs sustained during the pandemic such as Personal Protective Equipment, employee wages, or maintaining inventory.  

All 13 Provinces and Territories have allocated different amounts of funds for businesses, and all applications are completed online or over the phone. More information for each province’s eligibility criteria and application are provided below. 

COVID-19 Business Support Grants In Ontario 

In Ontario, small businesses can access $10,000 to a maximum of $20,000. This funding will help cover the decreased revenue as a result of the Province-wide shut that was enforced on December 26, 2020. 

With that being said, the businesses must have experienced a decline in revenue of at least 20% when comparing April 2019 and April 2020. If you have also established a new business since April 2019, you are eligible for a small business relief grant, considering the business meets other edibility criteria.  

Ontario small businesses will have the freedom to utilize this support in a variety of channels and tools that will help with the reopening of their business, such as 

  1. Employee Wages, 
  2. Inventory Maintenance,  
  3. Personal Protective Equipment, etc.
