Find More About Government Grants Canada and
Whats On Offer
  • Government grants in Canada are available for a
    whole host of different sectors and with COVID-19
    still a real threat to the economy, support is
    still available for many businesses and
    organizations to help get them through tough
    times.

    arts, culture and sport, business, the
    environment, for indigenous people, gender

What are grants?
  • Grants are given to individuals, businesses or
    organizations to carry out particularly pieces of
    work, studies, research, programs, trials, or to
    support vulnerable or minority members of
    society. The applicant will need to fulfil a
    strict criteria and application process, but
    money from a grant is not money that needs to be
    paid back. Funds are also being made available to
    help business and industries survive the COVID-19
    crisis. But there are very few grants that dont
    have any strings attached and they are usually
    very focused projects and campaigns that are
    eligible.

    that provide a full listing of the grants
    available in different sectors. For example,

    and there are also grants that are specific to
    different geographical areas.
