help canada's hardest hit businesses survive
2 million jobs
of businesses will be unable to stay operational without an extension to CEWS & CERS
last to recover.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, travel and tourism has ground to a halt.
Canada’s hardest hit businesses have seen festivals, concerts, conventions, Indigenous tourism experiences, fairs, exhibitions, and business and sporting events cancelled. These events won’t resume until 2022 at the earliest.
CEWS & CERS kept us alive for COVID Year 1.
Help Canada’s hardest hit businesses survive
Canada’s hardest hit businesses need to know that government will continue to provide wage and fixed cost support until necessary public health restrictions are lifted and normal travel and events can resume. An extension of CEWS and CERS at a subsidy rate of 20% will not be enough.
We are asking that a new, tailored wage and fixed cost support program be established at the earliest opportunity for Canada's hardest hit businesses to ensure their survival into the fall and winter.
