Financial Assistance

Depending on your needs, our fund is available in two forms:

  • Loan of up to $150,000 on a variable term basis with a competitive interest rate
  • Subsidy of up to a maximum amount of $25,000. The subsidy must not exceed 25% of the total cost of the project

  • Have Canadian citizenship, be a permanent resident or hold a Quebec selection certificate (CSQ)
  • Be legally incorporated and registered in the Registraire des entreprises du Québec (REQ)
  • Have a Montréal-based address, and have a head office in the province of Quebec
