Grant Programs

Women’s Enterprise Centre does not have a grant program. 
We are not associated with the Small Business Finance Centre or The Centre.

Contrary to popular belief, grants for business start-ups are few and far between. Aside from there being a limited pool of accessible money, the application process and reporting requirements can be a serious drain of your time. In most cases, the procedure required to obtain a grant is simply not a practical use of the new business owner's time!

You should never have to pay for grant information!

There are funding sources (including grants) for specific purposes, which may be eligible for. The websites below contain more information on some funding sources available.
