These are tough times for small businesses. Here we look at the most recent COVID-19 financial compensation measures put in place by the Canadian government to bring relief to those adversely affected by the shutdowns. Owners and operators of pizzerias, restaurants or bakery/cafés and other businesses, tune in for examples of how the relief funding would work for a small shop and details on how to access it.

Helping us navigate the government programs is Bonny Koabel, who is a Chartered Professional Accountant, a Certified General Accountant and president of AKR Consulting Canada in Mississauga, Ont., which has specialized in government grants, subsidies, tax credits, refunds and rebates since 2003.
