Description: Top story: Businesses can apply for the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy starting today. The federal government’s program covers 75 per cent of employees’ wages for organizations that were financially impacted by COVID-19.

Emergency relief is being discussed by the federal political parties. Last week, the prime minister announced a $9 billion financial package for current post-secondary students and recent graduates. The first virtual sitting of parliament is happening on Tuesday, followed by an in-person sitting on Wednesday.
