COVID-19 Updates News Business and Operations Finance Podcast canadian pizza podcast

As restaurants in some provinces slowly begin to reopen and others make plans to reopen, we thought it would be a good time to check in with funding expert Bonny Koabel for an update on COVID-19 financial compensation measures meant to help small businesses adversely affected by the shutdowns.

In this podcast we learn about:

  • New developments in the Canadian Emergency Rental Assistance program.
  • A government push for 10 paid sick days.
  • Differences between the 75% Wage Subsidy and the 10% Wage Subsidy.
  • Conditions of the Canada Emergency Response Benefit.
  • Future government audits.
  • A government hiring grant program offering businesses up to $6,000.

Bonny Koabel is a Chartered Professional Accountant and a Certified General Accountant. She is president of president of AKR Consulting Canada – a Mississauga, Ontario, firm specializing in government grants, subsidies, tax credits, refunds and rebates since 2003.
