Black Entrepreneurship Program
Every day, Black business owners and entrepreneurs make invaluable contributions to communities across the country, and their success is essential to Canada's economic recovery and future prosperity.
The Black Entrepreneurship Program (BEP) is a national program that will provide Black business owners and entrepreneurs with the supports they need to not only recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, but also lay a foundation that will enable them to grow their business in the months and years to come. The Program has three main components:
- Up to $53 million to create a National Ecosystem Fund for Black-led organizations;
- Up to $161 million for Black business owners and entrepreneurs ($33M from the Government and $128M from participating financial institutions); and
- Up to $6.5 million to create a Black Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub.
Applications received from eligible businesses located in Nunavut, Northwest Territories, and Yukon will be processed by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev).
