COVID 19 – FINANCIAL RESOURCES FOR BC RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES

There is absolutely no doubt about it, we are facing a very challenging time due to the COVID 19 virus. It is impossible to turn on any kind of media and not be bombarded with facts and figures about contamination and fatality numbers. Social distancing and self isolation, things that we had never heard of a few weeks ago have become the forefront of our lives. We are isolated from our loved ones, friends and co-workers and we don’t know when this pandemic will come to an end.

One of the major effects of the pandemic is on businesses, large and small. One after another businesses are having to shut down and the knock on effect of this is laying off employees. Hard working Canadians are suddenly finding themselves without a pay cheque, no way to pay their rent or Mortgage or put food on the table.

The Government of Canada has recognized the catastrophic ramifications of the virus on a huge sector of the population and as such, they have put in place several remedies in response to this situation.
