With the COVID-19 situation evolving so rapidly, I know it can be difficult to keep track of what tools are available to Canadians to help get through this time. Below is a list of resources I hope you will find useful:
For the latest public health information:
If you believe you may be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, take the online self-assessment first before calling Ontario Teleheath at 1-866-797-0000.
Employment Insurance and support for workers:
Support for business:
If you are a Canadian manufacturer or business that can assist Canada in meeting the need for medical supplies, please visit: https://canada.ca/…/maintaingrowi…/manufacturers-needed.html
Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) & taxes:
Persons entering Canada are required to self-isolate for 14-days upon return to Canada, whether they are showing symptoms or not. This measure is mandatory; failure to comply can result in fines or jail time.
These are resources for some of the questions we are getting most frequently, but this list is certainly not exhaustive. If you cannot find the answer to your question in the above resources, please contact my office and we will get you the answer as quickly as we can:
We will continue to support businesses, workers and their families throughout this time. We are in this together.
