Through working closely with public and private organizations the Innovation Centre offers its Innovation Members support with every aspect of doing business.  One of the most important aspects of starting and managing any business is to have proper funds to operate on.  Financing can be found through many sources:  friends and family, chartered banks, government programs, informal sources, or angel investors.

We have provided detailed lists for you to use in finding the most appropriate manner with which to fund your business venture.  In our Resources section, separate pages can be found; each details federal, provincial and regional funding organizations that can be of assistance for you and your business.

The Funding Portal is another great way to find up-to-date funding programs for your business. With 3 easy steps you can find all the applicable funding programs for your business from across Canada. Not all resulting programs may be applicable so a bit of sifting may be required.
