Covid19 / Coronavirus Resources

We had a pretty rough month. Being home isolated – especially if you have recently been laid off or lost some revenue and have to take care of kids staying home from school is not easy. We have decided to compile some help that is available to help you through this crisis. 

  • Wage subsidy:75% wage subsidy for businesses with revenue decreases of 15% or more, for up to 3 months, retroactive to March 15, 2020. The subsidy will apply on the first $58,700 of annual salary, or $847/week.
  • Emergency benefit: Taxable benefit of $2,000 a month for up to 4 months to workers who must stop working or working 10 hours or less a week due to COVID-19 and do not have access to paid leave, those who are sick with COVID-19, those taking care of a sick family member, and self-employed individuals, including contract workers.
