Updated: Jul 15, 2020

COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. As the global response continues to evolve, companies across all industries are facing several potentially significant challenges to which they need to respond rapidly.

Some of the support put in place for businesses include:

- Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy

- More time to pay income taxes

- Deferral of Sales Tax Remittance until June

- Establishing a Business Credit Availability Program

Some of the support for individuals include:

- Increasing the Canada Child Benefit

- Extra time to file income tax returns

- Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB)
