From outside Rideau Cottage in Ottawa, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today announced the closure of the Canada/US border will be extended an additional 30 days.
“This is an important decision that will keep people in both of our countries safe,” said Trudeau.
Trudeau also announced the eligibility for the Canada Emergency Business Account was being expanded to include more business owners across Canada.
The expansion includes those who are sole proprietors, if you rely on contractors, or if yours is a family owned business and employees are paid via dividends, “you will now qualify,” said Trudeau.
He added options are being examined for those who have operated their business via a personal bank account, or have yet to file a tax return.
Trudeau also said the federal government is ensuring Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be easily available throughout the country, largely due to contracts with Canadian companies to produce PPE nationally.
