  • Small & Medium Enterprise Relaunch Grant Program Expansion
    Starting early the week of December 14, job creators who have experienced a 30% revenue loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic will qualify for the program, lowering the threshold from the existing 40% revenue loss requirement. This 30% threshold will be available to impacted businesses retroactive to March.
    Alberta businesses affected by the public health orders in effect from November 6, 2020 and later will also be eligible to apply for a second payment through the program.
    Job creators that meet the program’s eligibility criteria will be able to apply for 15% of their pre-COVID-19 monthly revenue up to:
    • a maximum of $5,000 in funding for their first payment, and
    • a maximum of $15,000 for their second payment
    Application intake for the second payment will open soon.
    Canadian Emergency Business Account (CEBA)
    Starting December 4, 2020, eligible businesses facing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic are able to access a second CEBA loan of up to $20,000 – on top of the initial $40,000 that was available to small businesses.
    This means the additional loan effectively increases CEBA loans from the existing $40,000 to $60,000 for eligible businesses, of which a total of $20,000 will be forgiven if the balance of the loan is repaid on time.
    Application deadline has been extended to March 31, 2021.
    You will apply through the financial institution where you received your original $40,000 CEBA loan. If you haven’t received a CEBA loan yet, you will be able to apply for the full $60,000 at a financial institution where you have a business bank account, if you are eligible. If you use a personal bank account for your business, you will first need to open a business account before applying for CEBA.
    NEW Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS)
    will reimburse eligible businesses up to 65% of rent expenses, depending on how much revenue lost as a result of COVID-19. If you’ve been forced to close your doors by a public health order, you could qualify for a 25% top-up, bringing your subsidy to 90%.
    Unlike CECRA, it does not require your landlord’s involvement.
    How much am I eligible for?
    It depends on how much revenue lost and whether you own or rent the building. You can use CRA’s CERS calculator to find out how much you qualify for. You can apply for this subsidy retroactively to September 24, 2020.
    How to apply
    Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS)
    As a Canadian employer who has seen a drop in revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for a subsidy to cover part of your employee wages, retroactive to March 15. This subsidy will enable you to re-hire workers, help prevent further job losses, and ease you back into normal operations.
    The CEWS has been extended to June 2021, including changes to the rates and top-up calculation. MORE HERE
    Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB)
    The Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) gives income support to employed and self-employed individuals who are directly affected by COVID-19 and are not entitled to Employment Insurance (EI) benefits. The CRB is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
    If you are eligible for the CRB, you can receive $1,000 ($900 after taxes withheld) for a 2-week period.
