Creston, BC – April 24, 2020: For the past eight weeks, new information regarding COVID-19 has been released on an almost daily basis.

Canada’s Economic Response Plan: Canada’s Economic Response Plan outlines benefits available to individuals, businesses and sectors. Over the past few weeks, the response plan has grown to include specific supports for students, post-secondary students and recent graduates who are impacted by COVID-19. More details on these benefits will be released by the Federal government in the near future. Today, the Prime Minister announced rent relief for small businesses in British Columbia via the new federal-provincial Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance program (CECRA). Launching mid-May, it will seek to provide loans and/or forgivable loans to commercial property owners.

British Columbia’s COVID-19 Action Plan: British Columbia’s COVID-19 Action Plan includes immediate measures to help individuals and families cope with potential illness, financial strain or precarious employment. It also adds funding to key services, such as health care, housing and social services, to make sure they continue to support British Columbians and help contain the spread of COVID-19. These supports include temporary relief for BC residents whose ability to work has been affected by COVID-19 though the B.C. Emergency Benefit for Workers, which opens May 1, 2020.  ICBC recently announced a Payment Deferral program, which allows clients on a monthly Autoplan to defer their payments for up to 90 days with no penalty.  If you are wondering about Provincial support available, or your eligibility, please visit: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/emergency-preparedness-response-recovery/covid-19-provincial-support/financial-benefits
