Find It lists more than 4,500 government funding programs and 2,500 sources of private financing from across Canada, representing an estimated $30 billion in funding per year.

Use Find It to instantly identify and rank funding instruments against your particular funding needs, including: type of organization, industry sector, amount sought, and geographic location. The Funding Portal’s financing data is comprehensive and updated every minute. You save weeks of work.

How to use Find It

The best way to use Find It is to conduct four or five searches to ensure you have covered all your bases. Once you have viewed your initial search results, try a keyword search using the toolbar on the left side of the search results page. Try searches based on keywords that represent your industry sector or your funding objectives (i.e. employment, equipment, R&D, etc.).

The Find It search engine is a free tool for applicants searching for funding, but financing professionals are asked to inquire about The Funding Portal's specialized tool.
