Reopening Ontario after COVID-19
Ontario is planning for the next phase of responding to the coronavirus (COVID‑19) outbreak – reopening our province.
As a first step, we have developed a framework to guide our approach. This framework outlines the method and principles we will use to reopen businesses, services and public spaces to responsibly lead Ontario’s economy back to a strong position.
KPMG helps you understand government programs
There is an impressive array of federal and provincial/territorial government programs that offer subsidies, loans and other measures to meet urgent business needs during COVID-19.

General information about these programs is readily available from various sources. However, it’s vitally important to stay on top of the latest developments and understand the fine print – the eligibility details and other requirements – to properly evaluate which programs will work best for you, your organization and your employees, as applicable.
Join professionals from KPMG for a live interactive discussion on April 28 at 2 p.m. (ET) to help you better understand the programs in more detail and how they can help your operations.
 Call-In Details
Call-in details will be provided to registrants in a separate email.
