Federal Support

CBC News has an interactive hub of benefits to help Canadians discover and access the resources available.

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted many Canadians, and the federal government has taken an iterative approach to developing a substantial amount of financial support for employers and employees, small-business owners, and large organizations. Financial supports are available to help as many Canadians as possible as we learn to cope with the current situation.


In the spirit of community, a law student at Thompson Rivers University (TRU) inspired the creation of a free service to provide clear and simple information about the resources available to Canadians impacted by COVID-19. The service, created by students, alumni, and professors of TRU, is a blog and an app and can work on any digital device. Click here to try out the app.

Stay safe, observe the best practices, and help Canada overcome this pandemic.
