NCFDC Selection as a Loan Fund Delivery Organization

NCFDC is pleased to announce our selection as a delivery organization for the Government of Canada’s new $55 million Women Entrepreneurship Loan Fund (click here for the news release from ISED Canada).

Announced in Budget 2021, this initiative recognizes that access to capital, particularly in smaller amounts, remains a significant barrier for many women entrepreneurs seeking to start or grow their businesses. This new initiative will seek to provide smaller amounts of affordable financing to women entrepreneurs, particularly for start-ups, underrepresented groups or sole proprietorships which may experience more difficulty in accessing financing.

As of today, women entrepreneurs can apply for financing via DELIA: our online microloan fund. For more information on our loan program, eligibility requirements or to apply for a loan, please click here.
