RBC created Canada United, a movement to support local businesses like bakeries across the country.

The Canada United Small Business Relief Fund (CUSBRF) was established to help small businesses offset the cost of expenses to open safely or adopt digital technologies to move more of their business online.

Over $14 Million has been contributed by the Federal Government, RBC, and Canada United partners to support recovery efforts due to COVID-19.  It has already provided relief to over 2,000 small businesses across the country.  Canada United is now able to extend relief grants to more small businesses and restart accepting grant applications from small businesses across all provinces for expenses incurred no earlier than March 15, 2020.

If you have already applied but have not heard from us yet, you should be contacted by February 15, 2021. If you can’t find an answer to your question, feel free to contact us at cusbrf@occ.ca.

The CUSBRF will be managed by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the national chamber network in support of other chambers and partners to help small Canadian businesses with their recovery efforts as a result of COVID-19.

Successful applicants will receive a relief grant of up to $5,000. We intend to support local businesses of all kinds from across the country (from delicatessens, cafés to bakeries).
