MNP announces exclusive relationship as professional services provider to the Federation of African Canadian Economics

MNP is delighted to announce we will be working with the Federation of African Canadian Economics (FACE) to support Black business owners and entrepreneurs across Canada.

Last year, the Government of Canada announced FACE would be the legal entity designated to administer the Black Entrepreneurship Loan Fund (BELF), a component of the Black Entrepreneurship Program. Successful applicants can access up to three hours of pro-bono services from MNP, including business training courses to support their success.

For CEO Jason Tuffs, MNP’s support reflects not only the firm’s core values of diversity and inclusion — but also a longstanding commitment to the communities where our people work and live:

“Our philosophy is that making a positive difference in our communities means giving not just financial resources but also our time, expertise and experience — that’s what authentic investment looks like. The work FACE is doing is focused on supporting Black Canadian communities across the entire country and we are proud to collaborate with them and contribute to their success.”

Scott Crowley, MNP’s Partner Sponsor for our relationship with FACE, is eager to strengthen professional connections within the firm and lean on MNP’s strengths to make a significant social impact:

“From the moment we first spoke with FACE, our objectives were completely aligned — providing Black business leaders with the resources to help create meaningful and lasting change for their businesses. Through our relationship, we will be able to reach and support more of those organizations with their journey, strengthening both the business and social fabrics of our communities.”
