Our Objectives: Increasing Access to Capital in Manitoba

The objective of the Financial Services Branch is to encourage and facilitate entrepreneurial and employment opportunities within the province through the establishment of new businesses or the expansion/retention of existing Manitoba businesses.


How We Achieve Our Objectives

The Branch promotes increased access to capital for industry by serving as a principal source of financial advice and assistance for businesses to expand or locate in Manitoba. In addition to delivery and administration of financial programs for the department, the Branch develops and administers a number of third party delivered pools of risk capital.



  • Business Start Program (BSP)
    The BSP is a loan guarantee program offered by the Government of Manitoba to assist entrepreneurs in starting and growing new businesses.
  • Partnerships for Economic Growth
    This program consolidates funding provided to third party organizations in support of economic development.
