Emergency Wage Subsidy Extension and Regional Relief and Recover Fund announcements

Dear ATAC Members (bcc), 

We would like to bring to your attention the two following recent announcements by the Government of Canada which may be of interest to you. 

  1. The Government is extending Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) program until August 29.
  2. Minister Joly announced the rolling out of the Regional Relief and Recover Fund, $1 billion in support that will be administer by the regional agencies, ACOA, WED, FEDDEV, etc, which may be applicable to ATAC members, especially since most did not qualify for the support for large employers. (See Regional Relief and Recover Fund announced after the press release on the extension of the CEWS)
