COVID-19 Business & Community Resources
Targeted Supports for Hard-Hit Businesses

The Government of Canada announced its intention to introduce new, targeted supports to help hard-hit businesses and other organizations experiencing a drop in revenue. The government plans to introduce legislation to provide support that would help these businesses safely get through the second wave of the virus and the winter, including:
  • The new Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy, which would provide simple and easy-to-access rent and mortgage support until June 2021 for qualifying organizations affected by COVID-19.
  • A top-up Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy of 25 per cent for organizations temporarily shut down by a mandatory public health order issued by a qualifying public health authority, in addition to the 65 per cent subsidy.
  • The extension of the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy until June 2021.
  • An expanded Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA).
The Government of Canada launches applications for the Canada Recovery Benefit 
This week, the Government of Canada opened the application process for the CRB. Applications for the CRSB and the CRCB opened on October 5, 2020.
