COVID-19 Government Relief Programs for Business 

On March 25, 2020, the federal government passed legislation that would provide support for millions of Canadians who are impacted by the economic effects of COVID-19. The total package is worth $107 billion – including $52 billion for direct support payments and $55 billion in tax deferrals – which is a significant increase from the original $82 billion price tag that was initially introduced last week.
