CERB Covid-19 Federal Government Program

July.20.2020 | Event

Consensus was the both Federal and Provincial governments were doing a good job during the Pandemic with the CERB program providing financial support, but everyone agreed that amendments to the program were needed. Some businesses (ie) restaurants & food services are unable to work from home so their industry is suffering. Small business owners found the wage subsidy application was too stringent requiring too much information to apply. Suggested government implement a Bar Code to track business similar to one used in China for travelers arriving into Canada.
