Toronto Main Street Recovery and Rebuild Initiative
Small retail businesses are essential to the vitality and success of Toronto’s main streets and neighbourhoods, and key drivers of economic prosperity for residents, families, communities and the city as a whole.
To assist small businesses in Toronto to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario is providing up to $18 million for six programs comprising the Toronto Main Street Recovery and Rebuild Initiative.
Grants, training and resources provided through the Toronto Main Street Recovery programs are available until March 31, 2024, and aim to support small business operators, community business associations, streetscape animation and retail innovation. See here for more information about each of the six programs, eligibility, grant amounts and application timelines.
