Funding for Food Starter Training

April 13, 2019

Interested in being part of Food Starter’s Food Commercialization Program? We’ve identified two financial resources that might make it easier for start ups to participate:

Option 1

The Canada Ontario Job Grant will contribute 2/3rds (up to a maximum of $10,000) for employers who want to provide training for their employees!

Companies like yours can qualify if:

  • Your business has two or more people
  • the training improves the employee’s ability to do their job

The Rules: Companies must be licensed to operate in Ontario, have Workplace Safety Insurance, and be training an Ontario resident who is/will be working for the company. Employers who plan to train and hire individuals who are currently unemployed will be given favour for funding. Contact Eric Reynold’s of INAC Services for more information.

Option 2

The Access Community Capital Fund was formed to help promising entrepreneurs with viable business plans gain access to financing not available through other sources. Individual loans of up to $5,000 are made using a character based lending decision where abilities, skills and commitment of the applicant in conjunction with the strength of the business plan are key decision criteria. Mentorship is also available. Visit their website for more information.
