Nipawin Saskatchewan
Business - Small Business Loans

The Nipawin Economic Development, Business and Tourism Department now oversees three Nipawin Small Business Loans Corporations which access funding capital provided by the Saskatchewan Ministry of the Economy.   This Nipawin small business loans program has been registered with the Province of Saskatchewan for over twenty years and operates as an independent entity.


The Nipawin loan program itself enables the three local SBLA corporations to loan funds to small businesses, either new or existing, in and around the Town of Nipawin.   The maximum amount to be loaned to an individual company is $20,000 at an interest rate of 8% over 5 years.   The applicant may apply for funds in any amount, and may re-apply for a “top-up” to the $20,000 after loan repayment has commenced regularly for over 1 year.


One important part of the program is that Saskatchewan Ministry of the Economy will take second mortgage position on the collateral that is placed for the loan.   With permission of the financial institution, the borrower may use the new funds as leverage to borrow additional money for the purchase of a new piece of equipment or inventory for the business that they operate.


Each loan will be awarded on the merit of its application, the business plan, the need for funds and the ability to repay, and other considerations.   Saskatchewan Ministry of the Economy will not allow access to this program if you have other existing Saskatchewan Ministry of the Economy loans at this time or are participating in any other Saskatchewan Ministry of the Economy programs.



The three Nipawin Corporations are operated on the following basis:  Applications are available at the Town Offices.   The Administrator of the corporations will prepare the application, along with relevant documentation, for submission to the local Loans Review Board which sits periodically to make decisions on applications submitted.


If the loan application is approved by the local board, it is forwarded to Regina for final review & approval.   The funds are then sent out within approximately 2 weeks to the local Loan Corporation which will in turn disperse the funds directly to the applicant.

$600,000 FUND

Each corporation has a total of $200,000 to administer this program.   Nipawin has three Small Business Loan Corporations, or $600,000 available to local area entrepreneurs.   The Village of White Fox administers an additional loan corporation fund of $200,000 to its surrounding area.
