Through MPP Donna Skelly, a one-stop-shop website for Small Businesses has been launched. The website provides easy access to all financial support available to small business called, www.reliefwithinreach.ca.
The new Ontario Small business Support grant provides up to $20,000 for eligible businesses who:
- Have been required to close or restrict services subject to the new Province wide shutdown
- Have fewer than 100 employees
- Have experienced a minimum of 20% revenue decline comparing April 2020 to April 2019 revenues
- Businesses that are not eligible include those that were already required to close prior to the introduction of modified Stage 2 measures, and essential businesses permitted to operate with capacity restrictions
The website reliefwithinreach.ca also outlines information on what you’ll need to apply, property tax and energy bill rebates, funding for PPE costs rebates, programs for e-commerce, Canada Emergency Business Account, Mental Health & Wellness Support and more.
If you have any questions or need anything, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Christine, Veronica and I are here to help you as best we can. Regular updates are available on my website judipartridge.ca and at Hamilton.ca/coronavirus
