Small Business Support Program Business Relief Funding

The Small Business Support Program is offering additional funding for small businesses in Nunavut who continue to be adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

All types of small businesses are encouraged to apply including artists, craftspeople, retailers, tourism operators, and harvesters. Businesses or entrepreneurs with less than $500,000 in gross sales or fewer than ten employees are eligible for funding.

Applicants must submit a completed application package that includes:

  • Small Business Support Program Relief Form
  • Small Business Support Program Application Form
  • A short explanation of how the business has been affected by the pandemic.
