COVID-19 Relief Programs

Individuals

The federal government is providing a taxable benefit of $2,000 every 4 weeks for up to 24 weeks to eligible workers who have stopped working or whose work hours have been reduced due to COVID-19.

An online questionnaire will help us direct you to the service option that best fits your situation (i.e. eligibility for Employment Insurance benefits or not).


 

You can also look for employment opportunities through the Job Bank

Businesses

We are also covering a portion of an employee's wages for eligible employers. The CEWS will allow you to re-hire your employees and avoid layoffs as the economy continues to safely reopen.

The Temporary 10% Wage Subsidy is a three-month measure that allows eligible employers to reduce the amount of payroll deductions required to be remitted to the Canada Revenue Agency.

In addition, all businesses may defer, until after August 31, 2020, the payment of any income tax amounts that become owing on or after March 18 and before September 2020. This relief would apply to tax balances due, as well as instalments, under Part I of the Income Tax Act.

No interest or penalties will accumulate on these amounts during this period.
