I. Funding Resources


The success of your business depends on having enough money to purchase the equipment, buying inventory, pay overhead costs such as rents and salaries, and have a large enough amount set aside for additional ongoing expenses. It is essential to assess the costs of start-up and doing business, and determine the money required before you begin. This is an important part of the initial business planning process.

Due to the diversity and size of the local business economy, neither the federal or provincial levels of government provide extensive financial support for start-up businesses.

Information on available funding is available in the MBEC office or by visiting the following internet site:
