About this event

Join the City of Toronto team to learn more about the Main Street Recovery and Rebuild Initiative (MRRI) – Retail Accelerator Program (RAP), eligibility and application process.

Small retail businesses are the heart of Toronto’s main streets, employ thousands of residents, and are a key driver of the city’s prosperity.

The Retail Accelerator Program (RAP) provides economic recovery resources for main street small businesses in the City of Toronto impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. RAP is funded by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.

The program provides access to retail training, advisory services and mentoring opportunities. In addition, it offers a micro grant valued at $10,000 to help retail businesses develop and expand.
