Hello all,

As the questions continue to roll in for me, I have summarized what I know about the various government support programs into the infographic below.

Alternatively, THIS DOCUMENT does a deep dive into each and every program for individuals, businesses, and through the Provincial and Federal levels of government. Updated April 7, 2020.

Below you will see an update and some resources sent our way from OMAFRA, mental health supports from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, and an ask to participate in their national-level survey in partnership with Statistics Canada.

Our members at the Haliburton Echo and Minden Times, The Highlander and Molly's Bistro have included ads in this publication, as well as our series on working on your business when you can't work in it, check them out below.

As I have mentioned, feel free to send me an email that describes how this has impacted your business.

I will close by wishing you and your loved ones all the best, I hope to talk with you soon.
