Transcript: I’m starting my own business. What are ACOA’s criteria for funding and what levels of financing do you offer? 

Hello, my name is Claude and I work at ACOA.

Information on things like financials, repayment policies and funding criteria are unique to each ACOA program.

For example, the Business Development Program offers assistance up to $500,000.

It can help cover up to 50% of your eligible costs for start-ups, expansions and modernizations … and up to 75% of your eligible costs for activities like marketing and trade, innovation, training, and quality assurance.

For more specific information on the program that best suits your needs, contact your nearest ACOA office, or one of our partners: Canada Business or the Community Business Development Corporation.
