The City of Yellowknife (the City) is committed to supporting small and medium-sized businesses in their continued operation and recovery as COVID-19 restrictions continue to be lifted across Canada. The City is therefore excited to announce the launch of a new grant program: the Yellowknife Business Services Grant.

Starting May 1, 2022, eligible businesses are invited to apply for up to $5,000 under the Yellowknife Business Services Grant. This grant is targeted to cover costs related to various services that businesses have incurred or will incur in order to re-open or return to full capacity operations.

 

“Yellowknife’s economy depends on the growth and success of its small and medium-sized businesses. Supporting them in their recovery from the pandemic is essential and beneficial for all of us,” said Mayor Rebecca Alty.

 

If approved, businesses must submit their receipts for any service expense that helped their business re-adapt in a post-COVID-19 economy. This program will consider any eligible costs/expenses incurred as of January 1, 2022. Eligible costs may include but are not limited to accounting, marketing, training, and consulting services.
