York Region supports small businesses through $500,000 fund

York Regional Council has authorized $500,000 from the Innovation Investment Reserve Fund to provide COVID-19 support to local small businesses as the pandemic has significantly impacted the economy.

York Region’s nine cities and towns can leverage their allocation of the $500,000 to support small businesses across the Region either through existing municipal Community Improvement Plans or to expand the Starter Company Plus program. Starter Company Plus is a program delivered by the Small Business Enterprise Centres located throughout York Region on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade.

York Region continues to collaborate with all levels of government to implement economic recovery measures. Both the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada have launched multiple funding programs to ensure businesses are provided the tools necessary to survive the crisis and get back to work as soon as possible.

In addition, York Region has shared resources for businesses at york.ca/covid19forbusiness where a toolkit and other assets can be downloaded and used.
