February 23, 2022

Ottawa businesses impacted by the “Freedom Convoy” demonstration will be eligible for $10,000 in federal funding to help cover operating costs.

The federal government has announced up to a $20 million investment to provide “non-repayable contributions” to Ottawa businesses who have suffered losses during the three-week blockade.

Retail Council of Canada estimated the first seven days of the closure cost the Rideau Centre $19.7 million in lost revenue.
