Dear Commercial Members,
The VantageOne Credit Union Commercial Services Team wants to assure you that we will continue to support our member businesses and organizations during these financially uncertain times. If you’re facing financial challenges as a result of COVID-19 or the economic downturn, we’re here to help. Below is some further information about the Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA).
What is the current status of this program at VantageOne?
VantageOne will be able to offer this program and we are actively working with our partners and the federal government to launch the CEBA program to our members as soon as possible.
Why has it taken this long?
The government is working through a process to get hundreds of financial institutions set up across Canada. We assure you that this is a top priority for our team and we have all available resources focused and working to get ready to launch this program as soon as it is made available to us. We are on the official list, in the queue and hopeful our turn will be within the next week.
How will I know the program has launched?
You will receive an email from us once the application goes live. Updates will also be posted on our website homepage, in our online COVID-19 Resource Centre and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn) when it is available and will include more information on how to apply.
