We are very glad to share that after the months of criticism, the Federal government announced a new Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy program to help businesses through pandemic. The program is still in the works and will start accepting applications in the very near future.
However, we would like to share some of its highlights to make sure you will be ready to apply for it when the intake opens.
Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy will be available to both tenants and property owners until June 2021. The new rent subsidy would support businesses, charities, and non-profits that have suffered a revenue drop, by subsidizing up to 65% of their rent and other eligible expenses until December 19, 2020. The applicants would be able to make claims retroactively for the period that began September 27 and ends October 24, 2020.
Don’t know where to start and how to prepare an application or have questions about other government funding programs?

Yesterday in his Throne Speech the Prime Minister announced the extension of the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) through the summer of 2021. The program reimburses up to 75% of the salaries if your sales are down due to pandemic. This extension is important because it provides the funding option to those businesses that are not impacted by the pandemic yet, but may be impacted in months to come.
However, before the extension becomes a law it has to be passed by the Parliament. And last night the opposition leaders clearly demonstrated that it won’t be an easy vote. So be patient and stay tuned to our updates.
