Businesses in Akwesasne, Cornwall, and the United Counties of S.D.&G unable to access existing federal relief measures or who require further assistance above existing support can still apply for funding under RRRF. Unlike the Canada Emergency Business Account, companies without a separated business bank account are eligible.
Businesses are at the heart of our economy and many are vital to this community. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to uncertainty and anxiety for businesses and their employees.
In order to provide targeted assistance to the small towns, communities, and businesses we serve, Cornwall & The Counties CFDC has been focusing on assisting “main street” businesses such as retail shops, restaurants, corner stores, tourism based businesses and businesses of strategic importance to our communities, with 0% loans up to $40,000 and up to 25% may be forgivable. Loans may cover fixed expenses, inventory, the cost associated with PPE equipment as well as some Working Capital.
We still have funding available to those in need, please visit our website to apply today!
