Apply for March MEAET by March 13! Local Edmonton businesses could win a $2,500 or $1,000 cash donation from RBC.

March MEAET, Presented by RBC

March MEAET, presented by RBC is an online, micro-funding month long initiative to support local Edmonton and Metro Edmonton small businesses. It's been a hard, long year of COVID-19 and we want to support local Edmonton small businesses with a "keep the lights on" donation. As well, March MEAET will include weekly EAT giveaways from local food businesses.

It's Time to Vote for your Favourite Business!

Thank you to all the March MEAET video contest submissions from local businesses and for sharing your stories about why you need the funds for a "keep the lights on" donation. We have a total of 16 entries from local Edmonton and Metro Edmonton small businesses and they have a chance to win $2,500 (first place) or $1,000 (second place), courtesy of RBC. 

It's now your time to vote! Edmontonians have the opportunity to determine the winners by voting for their favourite business. Watch all the video entries and then submit your voting form between March 14-28, 2021. As well, all individuals who vote will also be entered into win a NextGen gift basket full of goodies from local businesses. Winners will be announced on March 29, 2021 on NextGen's Instagram.

Please see the contest rules for all the details.
