Canadian Government Business Grants For Budding Entrepreneurs

Like most of the developed countries, the government of Canada also offers substantial assistance and avenues for jumpstarting their business for the budding entrepreneurs. Especially, government grants are conveniently available for all types of small business enterprises. One would come across ads floated by the government stating "Canadian Government business grants is now available for your small business" and they are found in the print, electronic, and web media very often.

Requirements of Grants

Entrepreneurs in Canada may be in need of money for starting or running their small business and therefore might be looking for grant, loans, and any other form of financial assistance. Most of the requirements include -

Purchase of new equipments;Setting up the new establishment;Remodeling or renovating the old establishment;Replacement of machineries and furniture;Research and development works;Training and orientation;Advertising and publicity; andVarious other purposes relating to business.

Government of Canada has opened up sources for all of them and has taken a friendly and sponsoring attitude towards these business enterprises with the realization that they are vital for overall improvement of the economic condition of the country by providing various Canadian Government business grants.

Commitment of Government

One of the advantages of budding entrepreneurs is that the Canadian Government is committed to supporting the entrepreneurs. Every year the government sets aside a large budget for the purpose of funding programs that includes grants as well as loans for small business enterprises. Since free Canadian government business grants that need not be paid back are also available for the purpose, it would be prudent for the prospective entrepreneurs to take advantage of these grants that can help resolve most of their financial problems of starting or running the small business enterprise.

the next name on the list will be notified and given 24 hours to respond
