Small business owners and self employed makers often do not have access to affordable insurance plans as individuals. Membership with Craft Ontario gives you access to exclusive insurance rates and plans specifially for people in the arts! See available covergae options below.
This program is for arts professionals that find themselves in a position where change is essential. You may be a visual or craft-based artist undertaking a new community installation that requires a budget beyond your individual means, or you could be a maker taking a trip to another city to exhibit your work.
The Creative Arts Credit Union is a financial institution designed exclusively to meet creative practitioners needs.
Creative Arts can also structure a personal line of credit to help you meet your business goals.
Our Self-Promotion Loan is available as a line of credit — of $5,000 or more — for qualified borrowers. For members who want the discipline of a fixed repayment schedule, you can choose from levels of monthly payments to retire the drawn balance over a three-year term.
