Frequently Asked Questions

CEBA will provide interest-free loans of up to $40,000 to eligible businesses.
To qualify, businesses will need to demonstrate they paid between $20,000 to $1.5 million in total payroll in 2019.  Repaying the loan on or before December 31, 2022 will result in loan forgiveness of 25% (up to $10,000).  

The loan is interest-free until December 31, 2022. Also, no principal repayments are required during this period unless you wish to repay $30,000, or 75% of the loan, to qualify for the $10,000 forgiveness feature.

If you choose to extend the loan beyond this date, an interest rate of 5% will apply during the extension period. We’ll provide you more information on interest payments during the extension period once the program is in place.

Sole proprietors who use a personal account for their business are not eligible. You must have had a Business account prior to March 1, 2020. Please visit the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan to view other programs.
