The Canada emergency commercial rent assistance (CECRA) program provides commercial landlords with “forgivable loans” for up to 50% of the monthly gross rent owed by eligible small business tenants that experience financial difficulties in April, May, and June 2020 because of the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program was recently increased by 12.5% in Quebec. 

Applications for the CECRA program are due by 31 August 2020.
