Canada Life Business Boost – helping small businesses start strong in 2021

Calling all small businesses!

To celebrate small business month and resilience amongst small businesses, Canada Life is issuing a call for applications for 12 businesses to receive a one-time Business Boost of $10,000. These grants will be awarded to selected small businesses in January 2021.

With the impact of COVID-19 across our country, small businesses have faced more adversity than ever and many have seen up to *60% decline in revenue. While some businesses have shifted their models to continue serving their customers, many are facing significant challenges and are struggling to keep their doors open. That’s why Canada Life created the Business Boost program – to provide small businesses with financial support that could help make all the difference.

Small business owners with 1-150 employees just need to answer a few questions on our website. In January, we’ll announce the recipients and feature what they did with their boost in different media stories over the course of 2021. Applications will be accepted until Nov. 12, 2020.
