Supporting the Manitoba First Nation Business Community

Covid-19 Update as of March 31, 2021

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, First Peoples Economic Growth Fund (FPEGF) has been delivering the Emergency Loan Program, called the Indigenous Business Stabilization Program (IBSP) on behalf of the Government of Canada. That program has come to a close and FPEGF has approved just over $2.0 million to companies who have been negatively impacted by Covid-19.

Furthermore, when the pandemic first arrived FPEGF deferred all loan payments for 6 months to October 1, 2020. Additionally we have extended loan payment deferrals to some of our Clients who requested and required additional assistance to survive.

Moving forward we will continue to work with our Clients to help in any way we can, including monitoring new recovery programs that may be announced in the future.

Please continue to consult with your Loans Account Manager here at FPEGF on any questions or concerns you may have.

While our office remains closed to the public, you can reach us at 1-888-942-6026 or email your Loans Account Manager.
