Truth on business support

Why have governments "suddenly" decided to offer help to businesses?

This is one of the most common misconceptions. Governments have been helping businesses for years, but have not been promoting their services. Only recently, with the liquidity crisis, have our leaders decided to publicize that financial assistance is available to businesses.

Whether federal, provincial or municipal programs, they are created to stimulate the economy, facilitate sustainable job creation and to encourage the creation, development and expansion of businesses. Billions of dollars are invested yearly to achieve these goals.

Some think or have heard that governments no longer offer subsidies to small businesses.

Now, more than ever, governments offer programs to Canadian businesses. A large number of them are subsidy and financial assistance programs. It is true that certain programs that propose subsidies have not been renewed but a considerable amount of new programs have been launched.

Thousands of subsidies and financial assistance programs are at the disposal of Canadian businesses. Today, exclusively for Quebec, we have compiled over 1112 subsidy programs alone, not to mention all the other forms of financial assistance offered to businesses of all sizes.

Private organizations proposing funds to businesses.

An increasing number of private organizations offer funds under various forms of businesses. Whether non-traditional or traditional financing, businesses seeking funds should consider all options that are offered to them when the time comes to fund their business project.
