The federal government tabled legislation today establishing a series of new financial supports to help businesses survive the pandemic — including a redrafted commercial rent subsidy program to replace the federal government’s much-criticized rent assistance benefit. 

“The only way we are going to get through this crisis is by ensuring Canadians are supported — especially our essential, hard-working small business owners across Canada. This legislation is an important next step in delivering the emergency help they need,” Minister of Small Business Mary Ng said in a statement.
