More Help For Entrepreneurs

We will help entrepreneurs get access to the capital they need to succeed and grow.

From small home-based startups to growing mid-sized companies, entrepreneurs help create the kind of good jobs we can raise our families on. Though we have made good progress supporting growing businesses in Canada – including those led by women and young people – nearly one in five entrepreneurs say it’s still a challenge to get the financing they need from traditional financial institutions like banks and credit unions.

To make it easier and more affordable to start and grow a business, we will create the Canada Entrepreneur Account, administered through the Business Development Bank of Canada, to provide up to 2,000 entrepreneurs with as much as $50,000 each to launch their new businesses.
