The Small and Medium Sized Business Recovery Grant

This is a grant provided by the BC provincial government and it provides $10,000 and $30,000 to small and medium-sized BC businesses impacted by COVID-19. There is an extra $5,000 to $15,000 available for businesses in the tourism industry.
The B.C. government’s Small and Medium Sized Business Recovery Grant program has fully funded grants of up to $30,000 for B.C. businesses and up to an additional $15,000 for tourism-related businesses, to help ensure they have the support they need during and beyond COVID-19.
Eligible bars, breweries, wineries, gyms and fitness centres can now apply for between $1,000 and $10,000 in grant funding through the Circuit Breaker Business Relief Grant (part of the B.C. Small and Medium Sized Business Recovery Grant) to help support businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Small Business BC Support

Small Business BC is a delivery partner supporting Step 1 and 2 of the process – vetting and retaining a roster of professional service providers, matching eligible businesses with service providers, and ensuring Recovery Plans are completed in a timely manner. There are three options for completing this work:

1. Small Business BC has a list of qualified service professionals ready to support the development of a grant application and/or Recovery Plan, with funding of up to $2,000 to service providers for this support.

2. Businesses can also choose to use their own professional service providers by completing this webform. You will be asked to indicate if you would like assistance on Step 1 and/or Step 2 of the application process, and will need to include your application number and business name, along with requested service provider’s name, business name, and contact information.

This form must be completed by the business owner, not by the requested service provider. Please only complete this form one time per grant application. Any duplicates will cause delays in processing your request for matching.

3. Businesses can submit their own completed Recovery Plan to the B.C. government. No additional funding is available for this option.
