businesses will be unable to stay operational without an extension to CEWS & CERS

predictability FOR HARD HIT businesses

The CEWS program is a critical lifeline for our industries and employees. The program was well designed, well administered, and relatively easy to access and is critical in keeping many of our highly-impacted businesses open to employ people today.

 

The CERS program provides critical support to help with fixed costs like insurance, which is rising on average 40% because of COVID-19. There are modifications that can be made to help CERS better assist medium sized businesses, but it is critical for highly-impacted businesses.
