Other Financing Programs
The Canada Small Business Financing Program seeks to increase the availability of loans for establishing, expanding, modernizing and improving small businesses. It does this by encouraging financial institutions to make their financing available to small businesses. Under the Program, a small business must apply for a loan at a financial institution (bank, credit union or caisse populaire) of its choice.
The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) helps create and develop Canadian businesses through financing, venture capital and consulting services, with a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The BDC does this through:
- Financing: long-term loans for projects and working capital
- Subordinate financing: hybrid debt and equity financing
- Venture capital: direct and indirect investments in high technology companies
- Consulting services: tailored, quality consulting services at a price businesses can afford
