COVID-19 Financial Supports for Individuals
CAlberta Urban Municipalities Association has created a fantastic spreadsheet detailing what services are available for individuals, self-employed and employers. You can view this here.
COVD-19 has presented workers with layoffs and enforced self-isolations. As a result, an unprecedented number of citizens are in need of financial assistance.
Below you will find a compilation of resources available for those individuals who can no longer work due to self-isolation, those caring for children now out of school or child care, and those who are caring for someone who is suffering from COVID-19 or have contracted COVID-19 themselves.
