It can be hard to tell what information to trust for support and relief right now. We’ve done some digging to find the accurate and reputable web resources you need to help navigate your business through COVID-19. From financial relief information to accurate updates and support options, we’ve got you covered.

Coast-to-coast information

Canada-wide information is a great place to start when looking for how the federal government could offer support to your business. Updated daily, the Canadian Government’s COVID-19 page has everything you need to know about current numbers, support and updates.

Businesses get a special shout out on the economic response plan page as well, so you’ll be able to access specific business resources there. The Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses also has a great page that provides resources for business continuity, financial support, health, safety and more.

As things continue to evolve across the country, support and directives for your business will only become more unique by province.
