Toronto – March 30, 2020 – With more and more workers facing uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government has launched a multi-billion-dollar aid package providing income support and benefits to workers impacted by the crisis, and a new resource from UFCW Canada helps workers and their families navigate and track this support.
Called the “Federal government’s COVID-19 response: Income supports for affected workers,” the new resource lists the financial supports and benefits that are being made available to Canadian workers and their families throughout the pandemic, with details on who qualifies and how you can apply, as well as links to government webpages for further details.
Going forward, the page will be updated as more details become available, and as additional supports are announced.
