Requantifying the Rate of Incrementality for the Canada Small Business Financing Program, March 2015

The federal government has put various programs in place to assist SMEs to access financing and, most notably, the Canada Small Business Financing Program (CSBFP). The CSBFP is a loss-sharing program designed to stimulate lending through a joint government / private sector agreement. A perennial question is the extent to which it has assisted businesses to access financing that they would not otherwise have been able to access in the absence of the program. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to quantify the rate of financial incrementality of the CSBFP.
