TORONTO, June 19, 2020 /CNW/ - Scotiabank announced today the launch of the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) Mid-Market Financing Program, a new relief measure to provide liquidity support to medium-sized Canadian businesses facing economic hardship as a result of COVID-19. Qualifying Scotiabank or Roynat Capital Business Banking clients with annual sales over $100 Million and directly impacted by COVID-19, can apply for a term loan between $12.5 and $60 Million as part of this program.
