Covid19 Quick Access Guide on Canada's Emergency Support Measures - UPDATED

Economic Capability CFEE12.04.20

CFEE is a non-partisan, non-political organization and we have a policy of not posting political materials. However, these are extraordinary times and so, at this time, we are going to make an exception. We believe many would be interested in the following information – A “Quick-Access Guide” (updated December 4, 2020) to help you quickly find and access the emergency support programs introduced by the Government of Canada in response to COVID-19. This information that we are sharing is provided by the MP for Etobicoke Centre – Yvan Baker. We do not see political intent in its message. Rather we see it as information needed. We hope you agree and that you find it helpful.
