Western Canadian Businesses Can Now Apply for the New RRRF

(May 13, 2020) Message from: Western Economic Diversification Canada


The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in uncertainty and anxiety for businesses and their employees. Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are at the heart of our economy and our communities. As a source of local employment and pride, they play a key role in our national well-being. 

Today, the Government of Canada announced that western Canadian businesses can now apply for the new Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF) through Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD).

Businesses are encouraged to visit the WD website to learn about eligibility criteria and determine which funding stream is right for them.

All applicants are encouraged to consult the Program Guidelines prior to submitting an application, and to contact WD should you have additional questions.  Inquiries via email are encouraged and can be sent to

A high volume of applications is anticipated.  WD is accepting applications on an ongoing basis and will review them on a first-come, first served basis.

For more information about additional support offered by WD and the Government of Canada, please visit the WD COVID-19 response page.
