Canada Emergency Business Account Application

Thank you for your interest in the Canada Emergency Business Account program (the "Program"). The Program provides access to a loan $40,000 for eligible borrowers with payroll between $20,000 and $1.5 million in the 2019 calendar year to help cover non-deferrable operating costs while their businesses are affected by COVID-19. The loan is interest free until December 31, 2022. If you repay at least 75% of the loan before December 31, 2022, 25% of the loan will be forgiven.
