Since March 15, 2020, Canadian businesses have struggled with unprecedented challenges due to COVID 19. This on-demand webinar will update you on the government programs that are available to your business and brief you on the best practices that have developed over the last five weeks. The end includes some time with Neena answering questions.

Learn about the different incentives and programs designed to assist employers:

  • Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy – who is eligible, who is not and the gaps
  • The 10% Small Business Subsidy – who is eligible, who is not and the gaps
  • EI Work-sharing – does it make sense anymore?
