Canada Small Business Financing Program

The program expanded in June 2021 to include non-profit and charitable social enterprises. It makes it easier for small businesses and organizations to get loans. It does this by sharing financial risk with lenders. Loans can be used to finance purchase:

  • Or improvement of land or buildings used for commercial purposes
  • Or improvement of new or used equipment
  • Of new or existing leasehold improvements (renovations to leased property by a tenant)
