There's still time to tap into a provincial grant program that has been underutilized by BC businesses. The office of Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Murray Rankin has sent out a reminder to local businesses that they can access the program until funds are fully allocated, or March 31 — whichever comes first
Grants of $10,000 to $30,000 are available, while an additional $5,000 to $15,000 grant is available to eligible tourism businesses.
The province lowered barriers to the program on Dec. 18, but it still has had less uptake than expected. Businesses that sent in applications before the change will be reevaluated under the new criteria.
