Governments Provide Support To Small Businesses

The governments of Canada and Manitoba will be providing support to agri-processors and industry service providers to expand their market presence.
 
Through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership Market Development stream, the governments of Canada and Manitoba will be providing up to $149,215 for 11 projects to improve their marketing activities that increase innovation and business capacity to expand or maintain existing market presence.
 
“Through this investment, we are supporting a range of agriculture and agri-food projects to grow farm and food-processing businesses,” said federal Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau. “We continue to support farmers and food processors as they take advantage of new market opportunities here and around the world and respond to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
 
“Manitoba’s small businesses have made many sacrifices to protect the health and safety of their employees and all Manitobans throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” added Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development Minister Blaine Pedersen. “This funding will help these businesses to be innovative and increase their market presence helping our economy recover.”
