Frequently asked questions

​What can the CEBA funds be used for?

Per the Government of Canada, CEBA funds can only be used to pay non-deferrable operating expenses including, without limitation:

  • Payroll
  • Rent
  • Utilities
  • Insurance
  • Property tax; and
  • Regularly scheduled debt service. 

CEBA can’t be used to fund any payments or expenses, such as prepayment/refinancing of existing indebtedness, payments of dividends, distributions and increases in management compensation.

​Can I enroll for CEBA at more than one financial institution?

No. Business members can only apply at their primary financial institution, where they have an existing business chequing account. Applying at more than one financial institution could make you ineligible.

​What if there are multiple owners of the business?

Whoever is applying must have the authority to attest on behalf of the organization, and to sign the binding agreement to the terms of the CEBA loan.

Because we can’t accept multiple signatures at this time, we recommend that your organization prepares and approves a resolution that allows the person applying for the loan to have the special authorization they need.

​What if I own multiple businesses?

You can apply for each business, as long as each one meets the eligibility requirements and has an active business operating account with us.

​What if I haven’t submitted/received a T4 summary?

You are not eligible for this program without a 2019 T4 summary. If you’re waiting for your T4 or have lost it, contact the Canada Revenue Agency to have it reissued.

​What if I have accounts at multiple financial institutions. How do I determine where to apply?

You should submit your application at your primary financial institution. This generally means the account you conduct most of your day-to-day banking from, including employee payroll, supplier payments and collection of receivables.

​What if I don’t have a business account?

Unfortunately, you are not eligible without a business account. If you have an operating business account at another financial institution, please contact them.

​Am I eligible to apply if I run a sole proprietor business?

Yes, as long as you’re a business client with employee payrolls between $20,000 and $1,500,000* in 2019.

​Are there any conditions for the loan?

Yes, terms and conditions apply. You are required to meet all eligibility criteria. When you apply, you’ll need to acknowledge that the funds will only be used to pay for non-deferrable operating expenses and make an attestation that you meet these criteria, which is subject to verification and audit. All applications are subject to approval and funding availability through the CEBA program.
