Access to capital is often cited as a significant challenge for worker-owned businesses.  However, the CWCF has a small fund, the Tenacity Works Fund, which can make investments of up to $50,000 in eligible worker co-operatives.  In addition, it is possible to use RRSPs to help finance your co-op, and there are a few programs where one can find friendly financing and even a few cases of granting programs.   The following menu items in the Funding section contain information as noted:
