COVID-19 Government Funding for Canadian Businesses

COVID-19 Support for CanadiansAs the world continues to respond and follow the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, one of the most common questions we’re receiving is, “What is the government providing to support Canadian businesses affected by COVID-19?”

The Canadian government’s responsive actions evolve each day, and Mentor Works is watching closely for business funding stimulus in response to COVID-19.

To support you and your business during this time, we are updating this page daily with resources available to Canadians. As there are new government announcements every week, we also invite you to join one of our upcoming COVID-19 Support for Canadians webinars (below), where we’ll be sharing the latest incentives available.
