    Ontario Government Funding

    As an Ontario small business owner, you are in luck. The Ontario government allocates billions of dollars each year in an attempt to support small businesses across the province. Funding support comes from local, provincial, and federal governments and is typically in the form of a government grant, a low-interest or no-interest loan, a tax credit, or financial contributions.

    Our Small Business Funding Database currently contains 413 grant programs, 197 loan programs, and 310 assistance programs to select from. Funding varies in amounts from $1,000 to over $5 million in potential funding to small business owners across Ontario.
