Small Business Lender OnDeck Expands Canadian Operations

OnDeck Capital announced today it has expanded its small business lending services in Canada.

Since 2007, OnDeck has delivered over $2 billion to American small businesses in more than 700 industries and has been lending in Canada since 2014.

Since its initial launch in Canada in 2014, OnDeck has already funded more than 150 industries.

As part of the expansion, OnDeck will now offer loans up to $150,000 to Canada’s 1.1 million small businesses. OnDeck chose Canada, as the first country to lend to outside the United States, launching the company’s strategic initiative to meet the financing needs of small businesses in select international markets.
