Grants for Small Business Guidebook
Where can I get a list of grants?

For small business owners, it can be dizzying to look for grants one by one. To support small businesses, the government of Canada has resources available to consolidate the federal grant programs.

Summary: 

  • Looking for individual grant programs one-by-one is inefficient and will make you resent looking for grant funding
  • Government websites often have resources available to help small businesses identify grant funding 
  • We created GetGranted to act as a one-stop-shop resource for identifying grant funding for businesses in Canada.

For small business owners, it can be dizzying to look for grants one by one. To support small businesses, the government of Canada has resources available to consolidate the federal grant programs. There are also resources across provinces that provide lists of provincial grant programs by industry. Let’s take a look.

Government grant programs

It’s important to note that this list is not all-encompassing. There are countless grant programs that are not federally or provincially administered and therefore wouldn’t be listed on these platforms. For a comprehensive list of grant programs for small businesses, we created GetGranted.
