What is the program?

The Canada Small Business Financing Program makes it easier for small businesses to get loans from financial institutions by sharing the risk with lenders. Loans may finance the following costs:

  • purchase or improvement of land or buildings used for commercial purposes
  • purchase or improvement of new or used equipment
  • purchase of new or existing leasehold improvements, that is, renovations to leased property by a tenant
  • intangible assets and working capital costs

Up to a maximum of $1,000,000 for any one borrower, with no more than $500,000 used for purchasing leasehold improvements or improving the leased property and purchasing or improving new or used equipment.
