The impact of COVID-19 in the business world is undeniable. The Government of Quebec, the Government of Canada, municipalities and several departments and agencies have taken important steps to assist families, employees and businesses whose cash flow is affected by the impact of COVID-19, but some questions remain as to which programs can be accessed by whom and under what conditions.

To help businesses in all sectors stay on track with the government assistance programs, KPMG in Québec has developed this informative document.

Among the measures addressed:

  • Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy
  • Emergency assistance for small and medium-sized businesses
