As promoters of Canada, we are so proud to note that during these difficult times Canada has come forward to protect all its people. While many countries have shut down airports, not allowing even its Citizens to come into their Countries, Canada is encouraging all Canadians to get back to Canada as soon as possible and follow self-isolation regulations, if immediate medical care is not required.
Billions of dollars have been assigned to take care of businesses and people who have lost income due to Covid 19. Individuals can choose to defer their mortgages and other payments up to 6 months and landlords have been instructed not to evict renters due to non-payment. Almost every individual in Canada can apply for the emergency benefit which puts up to $2000 a month into their bank accounts within 3 – 5 days of applying for it. Over 4 million people found money in their accounts overnight.
Businesses are allowed to apply for an interest free loan of up to $40,000 and payments commence end of 2022. Its an easy application process online and money in your account within 10 days. Wage subsidy was just approved to allow businesses to keep hiring employees and up to 75% of their wages will be paid for by the government. These are some the major benefits that the government has put forth. The government together with the opposition is working harder daily to ensure that its citizens and small businesses will survive this crisis. We are so glad and so proud to be a Canadian company during these times.
