Ontario Small Business Support Grant NOW OPEN
&
Stay At Home Order Extended
With the new, more contagious variants continuing to pose significant risks, the Ontario government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, has extended the Stay-at-Home Order (O. Reg. 265/21) until at least June 2, 2021. All public health and workplace safety measures under the provincewide emergency brake will also remain in effect.

We also wanted to confirm that applications are now open for the Ontario Tourism and Travel Small Business Support Grant, which will provide oneā€time payments of $10,000 to $20,000 to eligible small businesses in the tourism and travel sector. 
 
This grant will provide an estimated $100 million to eligible small tourism and travel businesses that did not receive the Ontario Small Business Support Grant (OSBSG), such as travel agents, hotels, motels, resorts, bed and breakfasts, and more. To qualify, businesses must demonstrate they have experienced a minimum 20% revenue decline between 2019 and 2020 and have fewer than 100 employees. Businesses affiliated with an OSBSG recipient are not eligible. 
 
For information on the program and to apply, visit Ontario.ca/COVIDsupport and read the application guide.
 
The deadline to apply for the Ontario Tourism and Travel Small Business Support Grant is June 25, 2021.

We at Ontario Restaurant Hotel & Motel Association (ORHMA) remain at your service and at the government table. ORHMA continues to fight for more industry funding support as our industry needs more compensation to get through this as we have suffered enough.
