Could your small business use an extra $25,000? Purolator thinks so

April 26, 2023 | By Anthony Capkun

April 26, 2023 – Purolator launched its True North Small Business Grant Contest (2023) “with more prizing than ever for small businesses”.

“Canadian small businesses are facing numerous challenges, including the rising cost of inflation and labour shortages,” said Stacey Cummings, director, Marketing, Purolator. “That’s why we continue to run Purolator’s True North Small Business Grant Contest and, this year, we are giving more funding to small businesses.”

Purolator Inc. is an integrated freight, package, and logistics solutions provider.

The grant is designed to support the future growth of small businesses (50 employees or fewer), help them to expand, and continue to make “positive impacts on communities across Canada”, says Purolator.


Four Canadian small businesses will have an opportunity to each receive $25,000 in cash and $500 in free Purolator shipping credits. New this year… one of the four grants will be reserved for a Purolator customer.

Community partners and any Canadian resident of legal age of majority can nominate a Canadian small business of their choice. Canadian small businesses can also self-nominate. The contest is open from April 26 to June 14, 2023.

To enter, nominators must provide a description of the business, explain how relationships have helped this business succeed, and describe why they believe the business deserves a grant.

“Winning this grant allowed us to purchase more equipment to offer the best for our customers—Canadian farmers,” said Dean Gamey of Westman Soil Sampling, a 2022 grant recipient. “This allows them to adjust their soil as needed to optimize plant growth and deliver quality food for Canadians.”

The deadline for nominations is June 14, 2023, 11:59:59 pm (ET).
