Repayable contribution programs offer up various avenues of access to various funds for small businesses. Some programs take the form of interest-free, unsecured repayable loan, where all or part of the loan is repayable or conditionally repayable depending on the terms and conditions of the contribution agreement. On the other hand, some programs take care of up to 50 per cent of eligible cost for new enterprises, modernization or expansion projects. Such costs include expansion costs, working capital and capital costs. Furthermore, any related operational costs, involving activities such as job skills training, industry related courses, marketing, product innovation, productivity enhancement or quality assurance could meet the criteria for eligibility to receive up to 75 per cent financing or to a contribution limit of $500,000.
At times, the government may provide funds through partnership programs to encourage cooperation between unions and employers in finding ways to work together. There are some programs that showcase the government's commitment to specific industries. These programs assist by helping with lowering costs, improving productivity, efficiency and product diversity. Other repayable conditional programs exist to ensure the continuance of strategic R&D being undertaken by national aerospace and defence companies.
