CLE Leasing


Founded in 1979, CLE Leasing is a financial institution that offers a financing solution to small and very small businesses. A Must

CLE Leasing offers an indispensable means of financing equipment for small and very small businesses. Our mission has always been to help equipment suppliers increase their sales by offering their clients easy financing tailored to their needs.

As you probably already know, large financial institutions, such as banks, offer limited support to entrepreneurs, particularly in cases where the business has less than 2 years of existence or is starting up. Our president, Luc Robitaille, often says ‘Our specialty is the discomfort zone of other financial institutions’. As a matter of fact, our managers and our credit experts, experienced in this niche, understand the stakes of small and very small businesses. They understand that each client is different and has different needs, and therefore each request is studied thoroughly. We do everything in our power to get you easier access to credit. Our account managers, who also have a thorough knowledge of small and very small businesses, will advise you every step of the way.

The Innovator

Because being innovative is an integral part of our business, we are constantly looking for new markets, new opportunities and new solutions to simplify our client’s access to credit. As a result, we are now working in partnership with Industry Canada and are offering the Capital Leasing Pilot Project. This project gives easier access to credit to small and start-up businesses.

The Advantages of Leasing

Leasing is an excellent way of acquiring equipment and here are a few reasons why:

Be at the leading-edge of technology: leasing makes it possible to acquire equipment and be (or stay) at the leading edge of technology. Stand out from your competitors without breaking the bank!

Protect your assets: leasing gives you the opportunity for immediate growth. Start generating profits while preserving your assets and invest where it counts!

Flexibility of budget: Would you agree to pay the wages of your employees five (5) years in advance? When you lease you pay the equipment as it generates profits.

Pay less taxes: since your rents constitute an expense, they are 100% tax deductible. Wouldn’t you like to pay less tax?
