BECOME A PARTNER AGENCY
In 2019, Rise expanded its Lending Program for the first time outside of Ontario to Nova Scotia and Alberta. In addition to Halifax and Edmonton, Rise also expanded to Waterloo Region, bringing its total locations to 10. Only in Toronto and Mississauga, Rise operates an independent office. In other locations, Rise partners with local organizations that work in the employment or self-employment sectors. Each Rise site across Canada is staffed by one Business Advisor who is embedded in the partner organization’s suite of services. This partnership model is both cost effective and ensures a locally-focused approach reflecting and addressing the culture and needs of each community.
As we grow across Canada, we’re looking for local agencies to partner and collaborate with as we continue to expand. If you’re looking to enhance your existing community programs and provide support to people who are overcoming mental health and/or addiction challenges, we’d like to hear from you.

Rise first helped me buy a laptop that I still use today, and set me up with an awesome mentor. Their staff responds quickly and warmly, and makes me feel supported. As my business grows, I want to return that support because I so appreciate their help and their whole reason for being.
