Core Business Financing Programs

The Métis Financial Corporation of BC was created to provide British Columbia’s Métis entrepreneurs with financing and business development support designed to meet your specific needs. These services will help you build your British Columbia Métis owned and controlled business. 

If you are a Métis person in British Columbia looking at the possibility of owning or expanding your existing business, the Métis Financial Corporation of BC can help provide access to financing for business start-up, acquisition, or expansion of viable businesses. Our loans typically range between $20,000 and $250,000. We know that no two businesses are the same and so the risk and term of the loan determine the interest rate and therefore are decided case by case. 

All our traditional business loans may be eligible for a contribution grant. The contribution grant is not a stand-alone grant, and you must be approved for a traditional business loan to be qualified. 

Business Plan Support

The Metis Financial Corporation can offer business plan support to eligible applicants. We can offer repayable assistance up to 75% of the cost of the business plan, meaning the eligible applicant would only have to pay 25%.
