Attention North Vancouver small business community!

Applications for the Securing Small Business Rebate open Nov. 22, 2023.

Small businesses can get up to $2,000 for property repairs and $1,000 for taking preventative measures against property crime.

Visit the BC Chamber – Small Business Rebate website for more details.

Program Background

Recognizing the increased costs to businesses due to property crime and vandalism in rural and urban communities across the province, the Ministry of Jobs, Economic Development and Innovation has launched its $10.5 million Securing Small Business Rebate Program, which will provide small businesses with funds for eligible commercial property crime and vandalism repairs, or to implement eligible preventative measures.

The BC Chamber of Commerce will administer the rebate program and leverage its provincial network of 100 chambers of commerce and boards of trade and its myriad industry partners, including Business Improvement Areas, to ensure businesses from every sector and region of the province are aware of the rebate.

The BC Chamber of Commerce gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the
Ministry of Jobs, Economic Development and Innovation.
