CEBA Self-serve Portal.

The CEBA Self-serve portal, created by EDC, is a new option for all applicants to log in and check the status of their CEBA application. This portal will also help applicants, who applied under the non-deferrable expense stream, identify which of their uploaded documents have been successful and which ones were not.

The applicant will have to wait a few days following the submission of their loan application before details are available on the portal. The portal will direct applicants to contact the CEBA Contact Centre if further support is required.
