Restaurant & Bar Support Fund
The Ontario Restaurant and Bar Support Fund has officially launched with the aim of offering financial support to the province’s struggling foodservice operations.
The Fund is a registered not-for-profit organization intent on saving as many food and beverage establishments and jobs in Ontario as possible via generous one-time grants. The goal is to raise $5 million to distribute to at least 1,000 businesses to help cover their bills and routine expenses, with no expectation of repayment. It is open to eligible Ontario restaurants, bars, pool halls, pubs, sports bars, and other establishments.
Officially launched on March 4, 2021, this is a collaborative effort between industry professionals, including the Ontario Restaurant Hotel & Motel Association (ORHMA). Read more.
