Course Description

This 1.5-hour session will educate residential construction industry business owners on the best practices when researching, leveraging, and applying for government grants.

Business professionals have described grants as ‘pie in the sky’; they know they are there but can’t seem to access them.  Some have heard of grants or possibly even applied for one or two in the past, but the process can be challenging, confusing, and time-consuming.  It is important that for-profit businesses learn about what programs are available and be corrected on misconceptions about government grants. 

This presentation outlines best practices when preparing for upcoming grants and developing an effective grant strategy for your business.  It also covers ongoing Canadian grant programs that are currently accepting applications.  The ideal target audience are BC business owners that have been in business for more than two years and have a minimum of three full-time employees.

This course will explore:

  • Types of grants available to residential construction businesses
  • The importance of timing
  • What is a grant strategy?
  • How to be successful in applying for grants
  • Which grants are available now
  • Case Studies
  • Other funding/financial options


Approved for 1.5 CPD Credit in Business Planning
