Retrospective cash, wage and rent subsidies, hiring credits all on offer
A new aid package worth $7.4 billion has been introduced by Trudeau’s Liberals, which seeks to extend aid to businesses and workers that have been severely impacted by pandemic-related restrictions. Lockdowns will be decided by the Cabinet and will effectively close businesses and place workers at home for at least 14 days. The legislation seeks to give $300 to workers who will be off from work as a result of said restrictions. Unvaccinated staff, however, will not be eligible said benefits.
