Update (December 11, 2020): The Government of Canada, alongside its partners EDC have expanded the Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA) loan program to provide additional financial support to those eligible Canadian small businesses and non-profits who continue to be impacted by the unprecedented economic challenge brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under this expansion, the CEBA program will now provide access to an additional $20K to eligible borrowers who already received a $40,000 loan and $60,000 for new applicants to CEBA.

If you are a business member and have an existing CEBA loan administered through our credit union, and the loan is in good standing, you may apply for the additional $20,000. For those who are eligible, $10,000 will be forgivable if repaid by December 31, 2022. For example, if you are a business who has a current loan of $40,000 and are approved for the additional funds under the new criteria of $20,000 your total loan is $60,000 and of that, $20,000 is forgivable if repaid before December 31, 2022.

For those business members who do not have an existing CEBA loan or pending application, and meet the criteria outlined by EDC, you may be eligible for a loan up to $60,000 with a total of $20,000 forgivable if repaid prior to December 31, 2022. New applicants must complete the EDC pre-screening tool here and follow the other application requirements outlined below.
