As owner or operator of a pizzeria, restaurant or bakery/café, especially one with a dining room, you may be wondering what programs are available to help tide your business over as efforts continue to fight the spread of coronavirus.

Canadian Pizza will take a look at COVID-19 financial compensation measures recently put in place by the federal and Ontario governments to bring relief to small businesses, including pizzerias, that have been adversely affected by the shutdowns. With measures changing rapidly, this podcast will bring operators up to speed on their options for financial compensation.

Helping us navigate the government programs is Bonny Koabel, who is a chartered professional accountant and a certified general accountant. Bonny is president of AKR Consulting Canada – a Mississauga, Ontario, firm specializing in government grants, subsidies, tax credits, refunds and rebates since 2003.
