Scotiabank ready to support more Canadian businesses through the expanded CEBA program


TORONTO, June 26, 2020 /CNW/ - Scotiabank announces that it is ready to accept applications for the next phase of the Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA), with expanded eligibility that enables a broader group of businesses to apply for the financial relief program.

"We're pleased to see the government introduce phase three of the CEBA program and open eligibility up to more businesses in need of support during this challenging time," said Dan Rees, Group Head of Canadian Banking for Scotiabank. "We're excited to help even more small businesses gain access to relief funds and continue providing advice and solutions to help them come out of this even stronger."

As part of this third phase of CEBA, the federal government set out new terms that require Export Development Canada (EDC) to approve eligibility before funding is released. While Small Business and Business Banking clients will still be required to provide an attestation to Scotiabank as part of the application process, EDC will also request additional documentation before a loan can be approved. For more details on eligibility criteria, customers are encouraged to contact their Small Business Advisor or Relationship Manager.

Scotiabank stands behind Canadian businesses
Scotiabank was recently rated the leading bank in client satisfaction according to the Bond COVID-19 Canadian Client Impact Study.

  • Deferral of payment on small business credit cards and credit lines;
  • Payment deferral on business loans;
