Quick facts:
— the fund applies to eligible costs such as labour, goods or services purchased from a Nova Scotia–based supplier
— when an application is approved, NSBI issues a commitment letter which can be used for bank financing. When the applicant enters the official incentive agreement, the agreement can also be used for the financing process
— once a production is approved for a funding commitment, the funds are placed in reserve
— when the production is complete the applicant submits a final claim to NSBI for processing and disbursement
— all applications and claims are processed and approved by NSBI.
