OCLF helps small size businesses start and develop. Have a look at some of the businesses we’ve helped.

The Window Butler

OCLF helped David Lawoski's window and gutter cleaning business take off!

Grounded Kitchen, Coffee & Bar

For Owner Amir Rahim, Grounded is more than just a kitchen and coffee house. It’s a personal expression of who he is and the love he has for the restaurant business. It’s not just a place of work, but of family.

The Royale Equestrian Centre

Emily Bertrand's $10,000 loan helped her purchase much needed equipment and supplies. In July 2007 her dream became a reality when The Royale Equestrian Centre opened its doors.

Loving Paws

OCLF helped David Lawoski's window and gutter cleaning business take off!


When Andriy Azarov was starting out and in need of financing nobody would listen. He was the young guy, with a crazy idea, a new Canadian struggling to get his foot in the door.


I liked all workshop. It was productive and very interesting. I appreciate.

Excellent presentation! Slides were clear, not too much info/slide- perfect for ESL learners. She (The Facilitator) spoke slowly and clearly, used great examples, rephrased words and ideas to ensure comprehension. Effective use of whiteboard and flipchart to complement slides. Knows her subject very thoroughly.
Community Partner
Useful information for newcomers in addition for people who have never heard of credit.
