We know that many people are struggling to determine which forms of assistance are available to them in this unusual set of circumstances. Government assistance can be difficult to access in the best of times, and the COVID-19 has resulted in a dizzying array of announcements, programs, and updates. Some programs overlap, and all have different eligibility criteria.
While we cannot endorse this tool, we became aware that CTV News has compiled a guide to the programs offered across the country, which you can access here.
We encourage everyone to make sure that they are aware of all forms of assistance that are available. At the same time, we encourage everyone to be aware of their legal rights. For example, if you have been laid off, you may have legal rights beyond government assistance.
While we do not want to encourage disputes, we also want to ensure that you make an informed decision.
Feel free to contact us so that we can assess your rights and ensure that they are protected.
