Retroactive claims for the Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS) acceptedJanuary 19, 2021
Canadian businesses, non-profit organizations, or charities who have seen a drop in revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic may be eligible for a subsidy to cover part of their commercial rent or property expenses, from September 27, 2020, until June 2021. Retroactive claims as of September 27, 2020 are allowed.
This subsidy will provide payments directly to qualifying renters and property owners, without requiring the participation of landlords.
If you are eligible for the base subsidy, you may also be eligible for lockdown support if your business location is significantly affected by a public health order for a week or more.
