Canada Starts Recipients List

In September 2020, Ownr by RBC Ventures, in partnership with Staples, Shopify, and Moneris, launched Canada Starts, a $200,000 fund to help aspiring Canadian entrepreneurs get up and running.

Our team was humbled by the overwhelming response to this initiative, as we received over 1,000+ high-quality applications. We’re proud to be able to empower and support entrepreneurs to take the first step towards launching their dream business.

Applications for Canada Starts have closed, but we are continuing to provide tools and resources to help entrepreneurs start and grow their business. Learn more here
