Ontario Small Business Debt

Small Business Debt grows

Vacu-Man furnace and duct cleaning has been in the Hamilton, Burlington and Oakville area for over 40 years. Short of no surprise, like many small businesses Vacu-Man faced a hefty challenge with the Covid 19 pandemic in 2020. Fast forward to 2023 and Vacu-Man continues to overcome adversity from the increasing debt that has piled up since then. Vacu-Man pride themselves on providing quality air duct cleaning and furnace service for homes within the tri-city area. Their success goes to show that with perseverance and hard work, even businesses can survive during unexpected difficult times such as these.


The Bank of Canada has increased interest rates in 2022, urging more stress on the process of borrowing money. This seemingly endless demand for finances only seem to grow despite businesses already needing this generated debt to keep their structure alive. The reality is that Ontario is busy expanding every day and its citizens are becoming ever more negligent on how budgeting efficiently can keep debt out of the equation. To make a point, Vacu-Man created an Ontario debt clock as a constant reminder that every one of us has a part in regulating the cost of activities within the province.


At Vacu-Man, we understand that small businesses have a unique capability to make a greater impact on their communities.

Our customers experience this same hospitality, as they too are treated like they are visiting our home when they enter Vacu-Man.
