Securing Small Business Rebate Program
To provide small businesses with funds for eligible commercial property crime and vandalism repairs, or to implement eligible preventative measures, the Ministry of Jobs, Economic Development and Innovation has launched its $10.5 million Securing Small Business Rebate Program.
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, and can apply for the rebate.
There are two types of rebates, each retroactive to January 1, 2023, through December 31, 2024.
- Reparative – Provides relief for costs not covered by insurance or the insurance deductibles for those costs. Available as a one-time rebate of up to $2,000 for each of 2023 and 2024.
- Preventative – Provides relief for costs incurred to prevent damage to commercial property. Available as a one-time rebate of up to $1,000 for either 2023 or 2024.
The application portal is now open and will remain open until January 31, 2025.
