Tabatha Bull: How COVID-19 Is Impacting Aboriginal Business
It has taken considerable effort for governments to stay ahead of the country’s needs during the pandemic. While the policy response has been greatly appreciated across this nation, there remains a delay in closing the gap for Aboriginal business support, which has led to an increased negative impact. When devising the programs that will aid ALL Canadian business, Indigenous issues need to be top of mind for governments and the Canadian public.
To support Canadian small businesses, Deloitte has developed a simple tool that brings together in one place the various financial relief programs that are available federally, provincially and privately.

The COVID-19 small business relief tool helps you and your members navigate the available federal, provincial and private funding measures through a quick, easy-to-use questionnaire that takes less than two minutes to complete and comprises of four simple questions. It’s available to all business owners and those supporting Canada’s small businesses. The tool will help you find the relevant programs that your business can apply for and the process to do so. As the financial measures continue to change and expire Deloitte is committed to regularly updating the tool to ensure the most up to date information. Currently there are over 100 programs available to Canadian small businesses.We know how challenging the COVID-19 pandemic has been for your business and your employees.
