What is the Hardest-Hit Business Recovery program?

The Hardest-Hit Business Recovery Program, announced by the federal government in October 2021, is available to businesses who can show they have faced deep and enduring financial losses.

It provides wage and rent subsidy support based on a new eligibility system whereby applicants will need to demonstrate significant revenue losses over the course of 12 months of the pandemic, as well as revenue losses in the current month.

A new, temporary Local Lockdown Program, established in connection with the HHBRP but with expanded eligibility criteria, is available to eligible retailers navigating capacity reduction orders during the Omicron surge.
