BizLink Targeted Lending Program

Business Transition Loans from your Unconventional Lender 3 - Targeted Lending Program

At the CDC, we make loan decisions locally, taking into account much more than simple business numbers. Our perspective is unique because we are local, just like you. We support various ideas and ventures and offer flexible investments that meet your business needs.

Our targeted lending program is the perfect partnership between BizLink and our business loans. It can be particularly difficult to find financing when purchasing a business, as traditional lenders often view this venture the same as a new business start-up. At the CDC, we understand the importance of carrying on existing businesses and the economic impact it has on our community. 

These loans can be used for:
• Business Purchase
• Working Capital
• Start-Up/Improvement Costs
And the benefits include:
• Flexible Repayment Terms
• No Early Payout Fees
• Simple Online Application Process


Our goal is to help community businesses transform vision into reality and strengthen our local economy.
If you are located in Orillia, Oro-Medonte, Ramara, Rama, or Severn, you are eligible to apply through our Investment Program.
