Canada Emergency Business Account

UPDATE NOVEMBER 30: The Government of Canada has expanded the CEBA program for new applicants and existing recipients!

The Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA) launched earlier this year to help businesses cover operating costs during the COVID‑19 crisis, where revenue could be reduced. Effective November 30, CEBA support has been expanded from $40,000 to $60,000 in an interest-free loan. This expanded financing is available to new applicants (who can apply for up to $60,000 in financing) and existing applicants (who can apply for an additional $20,000 in financing.)

Business Credit Availability Program

We’ve partnered with Export Development Canada (EDC) to help provide small and medium-sized businesses with the financing they may need during the COVID-19 pandemic as part of the federal government’s $65 billion Business Credit Availability Program (BCAP). This program will provide eligible businesses with up to $6.25 million in credit to cover operational costs such as payroll and rent.

Give our Contact Centre a call at 1.866.863.6237 to apply today.

Business & Agriculture Loan Payment Deferrals

If your business has been impacted by COVID-19 there are options available to help including, interest only payments and full loan payment deferrals.

COVID-19 Government programs

Your federal and provincial governments have instituted several programs that could be of assistance if you need help financially. Although these programs aren’t related to Affinity Credit Union, we’ll do our best to keep this page up to date with any new information. Be sure to check out the links for specific eligibility requirements and details.
