COVID-19 Business Support Grants


Ontario is helping businesses recover costs for personal protective equipment and providing extra support for businesses required to close or significantly restrict services as a result of provincial public health measures.

Please Note: This GRANT is aimed at Small Business ONLY (fewer than 100 employees).


If you are a sole proprietor, corporation, unincorporated business, partnership, charity, non-profit organization or any other type of entity operating a business in Ontario that has been impacted by the Covid pandemic suffering revenues due to lockdowns of 20% or more and affected by the second lockdown: you can apply for this Grant relief funding.


Businesses that are not eligible include those that were already required to close prior to the introduction of modified Stage 2 provincial public health measures on October 10, 2020, and essential business permitted to operate with capacity restrictions (e.g., discount and big box stores selling groceries, supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience stores, pharmacies, and beer, wine and liquor stores).
