This is not a ‘best’ credit card list like our Top Travel Rewards Credit Card rankings but instead a look at cards for small businesses that have very good acquisition (welcome/sign up) offers.

And now that they have that all encompassing cash back reward option they have opened up applications to all Canadians except for those living in Quebec. They state Quebec is coming soon! So what are the new card offerings?
