The Corner Store Program stimulates local small business growth that can provide a positive benefit to the community.

The City of Edmonton supports the revitalization of neighbourhood commercial areas in mature and established neighbourhoods by encouraging investment in existing commercial buildings and local businesses. 

To achieve this, the Corner Store Program provides 2 streams of matching reimbursement grant programs: Corner Store and Corner Store Light. 

Important note: Only the Corner Store Light grant program is open to applications. 

Corner Store Light

The Corner Store Light program offers building improvement and business support reimbursement grants to eligible business owners and commercial property owners within Edmonton’s mature and established neighbourhoods. 

  • Combined Corner Store Light Grant: a reimbursement grant of up to 50% of eligible construction costs to a maximum of $15,000 for exterior and/or interior improvements to storefronts or ground floor underutilized or vacant commercial interiors.
