Since we launched in November 2017, our mission has remained the same. Ownr aims to inspire and enable entrepreneurship in Canada, by providing a platform to launch your business.

The recent COVID-19 developments have had a significant impact on the small business community. The Canadian government is taking unprecedented measures to support small businesses - the backbone of our economy. While a sense of ambiguity and uncertainty still remains, we believe these temporary circumstances shouldn’t deter those with a business dream.

Many are taking this time to pivot their existing business or to think about starting one. That’s why we’ve decided to launch Ownr Grants, a $25,000 fund to help support Canadian entrepreneurs with a grant of up to $1000 for each successful applicant. Starting and running a business isn’t easy, but with Ownr and some funding to get you on your way, we believe entrepreneurs can feel inspired to thrive during a time of uncertainty and change.

Apply by May 22, 2020. Available to new business prospects, AND businesses registered or incorporated in Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta or federally incorporated businesses. For full details see program Terms and Conditions.
