CBDC Application for Financing

Commercial Loans for Businesses and Entrepreneurs in Atlantic Canada

From small businesses to even larger ones, there are many times when a business may need a commercial loan. CBDCs offer a variety of loan products and services that help entrepreneurs succeed; such as Youth Loans, First-Time Entrepreneur Loans, Innovation Loans, Social Enterprise Loans and General Business Loans.  Perhaps you need to procure new machinery or equipment? Maybe it’s time to upgrade your facilities or buildings. Or perhaps a loan is the only way for you to improve or expand your business to tap new market opportunities. Banks and other traditional lending institutions can often be unavailable to you. At the Community Business Development Corporation (CBDC) we might be able to help!


Loans up to $150,000* may be available to eligible applicants. All loans are repayable and offer competitive repayment terms and interest rates. Financing can include a demand or term loan, a loan guarantee, or equity investment.

Loans will be secured, and can be from one to ten years, giving you the chance to develop your business while being free from financial burden.


CBDCs are always willing, able, and enthusiastic to help entrepreneurs do what they do best: run a thriving and successful business!

  • Entrepreneurs or businesses starting or purchasing a new or existing company in rural Atlantic Canada;
  • Expanding an existing business;
  • An existing company in need of working capital;
